847 – The Aurora

As happens on quite a few occasions the header picture has nothing at all to do with what I intend to write about except to say that I haven’t been to the waterfront for a couple of days, and I thought that The Mary Mouse 2 was due back on her berth in November, but had not returned as of the last time was there.

A few posts ago I mentioned the Aurora Borealis when I was writing about Gilbert White’s journals. I asked the question sbout what people from times ago would have thought sbout them when they appeared in the sky.

I would have thought that there would be comment about what the impression was of this phenomenon. I’ve just done a very quick google search and unsuprisingly there stories of lost spirits, portents of momentous or disastrous events.

I wonder what records there are? I wouldn’t have thought that unlike known comets the re-appearance of which can be predicted with relative ease I wouldn’t have thought that Aurora can either be predicted (which we can only do, at best about two hours ahead of the event).

I shall keep looking.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
