The Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) is at the top of my list of things to see before I die. I think they're amazing!
Yeah, I was lucky enough to go on a cruise to Alaska and one evening during dinner, the captain announces that they are visible on the starboard side of the ship. Everybody abandons their dinner and runs outside. It was amazing!! I snapped a gazillion photos with my point and shoot camera but was able to capture nothing. But I saw it!
