New Title and More Lights

On the tundra, at night, you see lights; strange sparks that wink out slowly as though a distant lid has lowered, or flashes that seem to spin; you see domes of light that float up from the snow, and you imagine lances of light stabbing down into the ice underfoot. Some of these lights are real, some are illusions and mirages...and some, according to the native Inupiat people, are 'immanyarok', 'little people'--wights, sprits, sprites and all manner of ghouls that flash at you, trying to lure you into danger...what a deliciously diabolical thought!

Below, a sketch of the aurora; just an experiment.

Processing photos and video soon.
