If you were in the field during BOREAS '94, especially in the NSA during IFC-3 (September 1994), then you probably saw the incredible display of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Here are two sites that explain about the aurora; the history and the science.

The Aurora Borealis in the northern sky

Norwegian Aurora Observatory -- History of the Aurora (mythology and history)

Rice University Aurora WWW pages -- Science of the Aurora (meteorology in space)
