Yeah.. got my filings tingling even from here!

I wonder what Nicoli Tesla would do about it – given today’s science and understanding? Perhaps he would suggest building a method of collection for re-distribution and use? say to power interplanetary probes? BUZZZ- ZAP!

I’ve often wondered about how the auroras would look from space.
