Odd that the sun's light takes around 8 minutes to reach the earth but the ionic clouds take 18 hours to reach the earth.

The aurora has a smell as well as sound. Go to Yellowknife and see them. They are a must see.

They are stunning. Many nights I have enjoyed the show, even stopping on a very deserted highway one time to simply look and marvel.
