On my bucket list is for this California girl to witness an auroral display. Now I can do that without leaving my living room thanks to the Canadian Space Agency. They have set up a terrestrial webcam in Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories that is designed to capture the amazing light shows caused by solar discharge hitting the Earth. The cam is only live after dark; follow the Twitter feed for aurora alerts. During the day, check out the Gallery of amazing shots. Video playback requires the free Apple QuickTime player (http://www.apple.com/quicktime).
