MY wife and I would love to take a trip up north and go aurora spotting. I just wish they were viewable from someplace tropical instead of in the cold places(brrr- Im not a cold weather person). Actually, m wife and I did see some faint auroras down here in NC a few years agao, but that's very very very rare.
