Beautiful

One afternoon last summer I was outside in the yard helping my mom plant flowers, I just happened to look up to see this little slice of rainbow cloud floating across the sky...
It was the strangest thing, as it hadn't rained all day. I have no idea what caused it or why it happened. It was literally a brightly-colored cloud floating across the sky, until it broke up and disappeared about 15 minutes later. It was one of the prettiest things I've ever seen!

Just a few weeks after that, Chris & I were driving home one evening when we saw a glowing purple light in the distance
Terrible photo, I know, but I was using my phone camera in a moving car! There were no spotlights or tall building lights anywhere near there that could have caused it. It almost looked like the glow of a giant blacklight in the sky!

These little light shows are rare in Indiana, so I have a lifelong dream to make it up north to see the real Aurora Borealis.

Yesterday I came across these pictures on National Geographic's site that just about made me drool - Can you imagine witnessing that gorgeous lit up sky in person?!

Just a little reminder of the beauty that surrounds us that can't be purchased with any amount of money!

I saw the Northern Lights here in Washington a couple years ago. They were red when I saw them though. SO amazing. We're lucky and once and a while can see them down here. :)
