I was today years old when I found out there was such a thing as "Aurora Cams" as in Aurora Borealis as in northern lights! And sometimes, one Up North on Pike Lake catches comets and the northern lights.

This is the kind of stuff I think your kids would really love. The National Weather Service shared this screen shot from The Northwoods Aurora Cam...

And of course, it got me looking around for more. Discovered there's an entire network of Midwest cams, literally a BUNCH of cams to see the great outdoors.

.And of course there are people just out there with their own cams capturing amazing images.

And still photography, too. Thank you Snotty Moose Studio for permission to share..

And from Polar Bears International, a cam in Canada that will blow your mind with regular shows of the northern lights. Here's a snapshot from 1AM June 15, 2020

This is the kind of stuff that makes me want to live Up North. How 'bout you?
