There were reports of widespread aurora activity visible throughout Canada and the U.S. last night due to a coronal mass ejection of ionized particles from the Sun.  Did I see them?  Of course not.  It's been cloudy almost every single #*@#&* night here in the Hudson Valley this fall.  Did I mention I'm teaching Observational Astronomy - a course that requires us to go outside and view the night sky.  Did I mention it's been cloudy all the time?  Anyway, visit Spaceweather.com for some neat aurora pictures from places where it wasn't cloudy.
