Snowbirds and Northern Lights

Snowbirds

The original:  I wrote about these pilots and their support crews early on as National Treasure #4.

The follow-up: They were at Kingston’s Air Show on 09 Sep, but had to cut their practice short on Friday due to a drone being in the area.

Northern Lights

The original:  I covered these as National Treasure #39.

The follow-up:  The biggest solar flares since 2006 drove great aurora borealis displays this past week, with possible sightings into the weekend, depending on the weather.

If you want an aurora forecast, there’s an app for that, drawing on information from NASA’s Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft.
