Aurora Borealis
AURORA BOREALIS
Nominated by Unknown

3rd Place February 09

The Aurora Borealis is an astronomical phenomena in which energetic particles light up the upper atmosphere with a luminous glow. It is understandable that tribes of the past tried to make sense of this eerie, awe inspiring affect!

Over the years the explanations of teh Northern Lights have varied greatly:

  • lighted pathways to heaven
  • omens of war
  • giant dancing salmon spirit
  • walrus spirits playing ball with a human skull
  • giants on a spearfishing exhibition
  • fires from blubber boiling dwarfs

Look, I didn't want to have to break this to anyone, but the Aurora Borealis is fake. It was invented by the Canadian Governor General in 1890 as a way to promote tourism, and is created by spraying our clouds with kool-aid. Simple, really, but the hoax has taken on a life of its own. The excess kool-aid is messy and kind of gross. It's wasteful, phony, and not that awesome. reply high five2
