Bucket list check off item! I have tried so many times to see these. I have driven for many hours in the night to no avail. I saw there was a good chance to see them but there was a lot of cloud cover so I wasn't too optimistic. So I drove North for about 40 minutes and saw nothing. So I turned around and head back South for home. I said let me try one more time, so I turned around and drove for about 5 minutes then headed East down a country road with a lot of farm land. I drove for about 10 minutes and didn't see anything but it was a clear sky so I decided to take a picture of the stars. When I looked at the picture it looked green. Then I took a video and the sky was kind of doing what I've seen videos of but I couldn't really see anything with my actual eyes. Then I saw a falling star which I always hope to. As I stayed a bit longer, I could start seeing them with my eyes. Not really the moving part but the green color. Then all the sudden it was going nuts. It was so cool. I had heard animals making noises in the field close by which was wigging me out but the bucket list item was happening so I stayed put and hoped it wasn't a skunk or something. LOL The pictures came out better than what I was seeing but the video isn't close as to what was happening. No matter what, once again I just marvel at God and His creation and was thankful He allowed me the opportunity to see this in my lifetime!
