Have you ever seen the northern lights?
I have never had the opportunity to see the Aurora Borealis but I have always wanted to. Have you ever witnessed this spectacle? And if so where?
I live in Northern Alberta, and I have seen them a few times. They are simply amazing.
Yes, I have seen it in Sweden.
I live in the southern part of Sweden (Skane), where it (normally) can't be seen. However, I have seen it in Northern Sweden.
awesome! Is it exactly as you would see on television?
No! There isn't any television set that can show the northern lights as fantastic as the nature can.
The northern lights are never the same twice, they are always fantastic, always spectacular, sometimes they are a simple dancing ribbon of white across the sky, sometimes they vary in hue, sometimes they crackle (yes they actually make noise)
wow! I'm gonna make it my mission to get a glimpse at some stage next year for sure. I've never heard of them making noise, that's so interesting.
Since it is electromagnetic activity the sound can apparently sometimes be even a hum kind of like high powered power lines.
I did one time and I am so far south that I did not know what I was looking at. I was driving home from school it was about 10pm or so and I see this flickering kind of swaying yellowish orange light in the sky. It looked like something was on fire in the distance or something - it was very strange. I live in the Midwest in the US and we never see the Northern Lights here unless there is a major solar storm or something.
When I read the news the next day they said that they had been visible in the rural areas here and that indeed was what they were. Had I known while watching them I'd have paid much closer attention!
That will not likely happen again in my lifetime.
Nope. I would love to someday, if it's closer to me to see it than going to Alaska.
I was born and grew up in Wisconsin. While the Northern Lights up there aren't as spectacular as the photos you can see on Pinterest from Alaska, Sweden, and Norway, etc., they are still visible in Wisconsin. Saw them many times over the years while growing up.

I am a firm believer that we are not alone in the universe. However, I have yet to see a UFO myself but believe some of the very credible evidence for them (Roswell isn't one of them for me)Have you ever seen a UFO?If so, where and what were the circumstances?

What is the worst film you have ever seen and why?I can find enjoyment in some pretty bad films, but the worst film I have ever seen was Uwe Boll's Bloodrayne. I was only able to bear about a half hour of the film before shutting it off and walking away. The film doesn't have a single redeeming...

Anybody claiming that The Avengers is the best film they've ever seen obviously has not seen many films, or has an extremely short memory. I'm pretty sure these people were the same ones who were saying that Avatar was the best film ever, and before that The Dark Knight, and before that The Lord of...
