    You may be able to see it again for the next day or two as a result of the solar flare we're currently experiencing, I'm jealous. I haven't seen them since leaving Alaska back in 1977.

    Absolutely beautiful. Seeing the northern lights is the only thing I have left on my bucket list.

    I'd love to see the Northern Lights sometime. They're not terribly uncommon in northern Minnesota. But I am. Lovely picture, bae.

    Yes, beautiful pictures, bae!

    Has anyone seen the viral video of William Shatner's reaction to his foray into space with Bezos the other day? It was touching.

    Not only William Shatner was moved to tears. Many of his original fans did.It is remarkable for a person in his 90's to go fo the mission. Anyone in any age will feel that, ‘something that I didn’t experience before’. And being a man with that legacy, it is something that not any fan would experience, I believe.Getting old, one starts to appreciate the smallest and the biggest things in a more pure way, ‘the air keeping us alive is thinner tan the skin’ - he said.William Shatner is just as old as the space technology race. Sci-Fi has a good part of science behind it, it is not a fantasy series. And now he participated in an important manned mission with precise landing control. Unbelievable strength and legacy of the man.
