this has always had me wandering , years back cant remember the year but i do know it was halloween night a group of us were out doing the trick or treat thing this might be 6-7 years ago now but anyway

i looked up at the sky actually had a pretty good view no clouds at all stars filled the sky but i noticed a rather large cloud like area it was a really deep red colour but transparent i see the stars through it

was this the aurous seen up better up north or what was i seeing ? i wasn't sure
i could see them from here i live around columbus if that helps out any :?:

That's probably what it was. The aurora is not common at our latitude, but it isn't rare eaither.

I may remember the very event you are desribing. Most aurora here are faint green, but that one was the most intense red one I have ever seen. Let my find my copy of athe inetrview I did live with WCBS-AM in New York to get the exact date and see if it makes sense.

You're actually lucky... we just got a new entertainment center so everything is scattered all over the house, but the CD happend to be close to the computer (Where it belongs...I'm shocked!! :eek: ). The date was Oct 30, 2003.

As I said, I have never in my %& years seen such a bright red aurora....it was "LED" red and looked like the woods were on fire. IIRC, it was seen as far south as Texas and Arizona.
