“Experience the Aurora” at the Anchorage Museum Planetarium amazed Margaret and I with the beauty of the Northern Lights.  The show was a 25 minute movie of time-lapsed photography of the Northern Lights in the Arctic Circle.  We are learning about the Aurora Borealis is to help prepare us for the silk dying class we will attend in the evening.  Can’t wait to learn about dying a scarf to look like the Aurora Borealis.  Stay tune for our post.

Did you know:  The Salteaus Indians of eastern Canada and the Kwakiutl and Tlingit of Southeastern Alaska also believed the lights to be human spirits, whereas an Eskimo tribe living on the lower Yukon River believed the dancers to be the spirits of animals. (Jokinen, Anniina. “Aurora Borealis, The Northern Lights, in Mythology and Folklore.” Luminarium.  4 Feb 2007. http://www.luminarium.org/mythology/revontulet.htm)

Margaret and I had fun learning about the Aurora at the Anchorage Museum.
