    The Source

    I read it on Engadget first but they are all making a fuss about how the end of the world is going to happen tomorrow and then they went off into a star wars parody -_- (no seriously look at here)

    BUT back on topic I have never seen an Aurorae Boreal and want to see one. Just don't know when and where and how (don't want to blind me)

    Holy shit!
    The world is going to end! Bollocks. Metroid: Other M isn't even out yet.

    On the bright side, I'll see an aurora if a comment on Engadget is to be believed!

    You don't need to take any special precautions to watch an aurora.
    But you might become a superhero from the cosmic rays [​IMG]

    In keeping with the theme of THE SKY IS FALLING:

    That's what I misread the title as. Seriously. I probably wouldn't have clicked it otherwise.

    Anyway, I hope it will be viewable in the Western Europe, too, it'd suck to not see something as rare as that [​IMG]

    I wonder if this will be visible in the UK at any point. The only weather we get is the shit kind. Would be nice to celebrate my good day with a night under the aurora with Jess.
