    Those borealis lights involve a fair amount of energy.

      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.
