    Can you see the Northern Lights from where you live? It is something I would love to see one day. Any pics of the lights?

    Thanks for all the comments!

    Peter: I will as soon as it is here 🙂

    Grant: Yeah you can see them in the winter. It’s too late in the year now because the nights are pretty light already. Hope to capture northern lights next year!
