101 Things To Do*

Science and Nature

See the Southern Lights

I was actually in a quandary about whether or not to mark this one as completed.  I have actually seen the southern lights – more accurately called the Aurora Australis – but admittedly it was from a very great distance.  It was during the Magical Night aboard Yoko, sailing from Hobart, Tasmania to Melbourne, Australia.  So, even though I haven't really experienced the southern (or northern) lights up-close-and-personal yet, it's definitely something I hope to do before I depart this world.
