SOMETHING TO DECLARE

When enjoying the wonders of the aurora, spare a thought for the satellite operators

Canada, February 2017: I stood in the snow on a frozen lake, watching as the sky twisted in front of me. Green bands of light stretched out in the darkness. Slowly the colours writhed and broke and reappeared elsewhere until, suddenly, a whole band rippled and pulsed across the sky, fringed with delicate yellow, pinks and purples. It was as dramatic as a thunderstorm, yet calm. Gentle, yet astonishing. Most of all, it was a gift.
