If you weren’t lucky enough to be in the right place or the right time to see any of the aurora produced by the Sun’s recent spate of activity, skywatchers around the world have started posting videos online of some really spectacular Northern Lights. Above, is the view on August 4, 2010 from Telemark, Norway. Below are more sights, also from August 4, from Latvia and Risør, Norway. These videos were posted on CitizenTube, a newsy version of YouTube.

“O Roar a roar for Norah,
Norah Alice in the night,
For she has seen Aurora
Borealis burning bright.

A furor for our Norah!
And applaud Aurora seen:
O where throughout the summer
has our Borealis been?”
