MazalienUnder pressure of some of my friends I have to reveal today what I saw… Or better whom I saw ? So this is how it goes : If you are in your bed, you may see aliens come through the door or even through the walls of your room. Or, you may have been sound asleep and suddenly awakened to see them standing there by your bed. You feel paralyzed. All you can do is watch as these creatures come closer. You are totally paralyzed. Your spouse or friend may be beside you in bed, but you can’t speak or move a muscle to awaken them. They sleep on, unaware. The aliens may speak to you, or you may communicate telepathically. They may touch you or say something to you to calm you as they carry you or “float” you out of the room. You may be led as you walk under your own power out of the door. They transport you to the inside of their craft – usually they ‘beam you up’. Even if we found intelligent life in another part of our galaxy, it would take us hundreds of thousands of years to travel to there….. and picture this : on arrival WE would be the ‘ aliens’…. So, what kind of alien would you be ? Take this simple test and find out…..:

ALIEN
What would you do if an Alien landed in the playground?
Would you stand there shouting, ‘Teacher, teacher!
Please Sir, please Miss,
There’s this great big thing with wobbly eyes and six pink legs Sir!’
Or would you stand still and stare,
And maybe poke at it a bit with sticks
And throw a ball in its mouth,
Or perhaps push Shorty or Fatso or Snotty forwards
To see if they got eaten ?
Imagine if the teacher came out instead, and shouted,
‘Oy! You there! You with the six legs! Yes, YOU!
Get back where you came from NOW!
THIS INSTANT!’
What do you think it would do ?
Would it sit there, humming,
Before gently lifting off and floating away back into space ?
Or would it stick a long tendril out,
Wrap it around teacher,
And suck teacher back into its mouth?
‘Yum, yum!’ it might go,
And you’d cheer, and all laugh,
And maybe one or two of the girls would cry
Because teacher was really quite nice, after all.
Or perhaps the Alien would open wide a wobbly eye,
Shoot a long, lazy glare,
And then raise two tendrils in a V-shape
Before blowing a big raspberry.
Well, what would YOU do if you were an Alien
Landing in the playground ?
I know what I would do.
I wouldn’t stay THERE!

Northern Light
Northern Light
If all naturally occuring heavenly phenomena, few come close to a night with a magnificent northern lights display. Flickering curtains of dancing light against the dark skies, northern lights is certainly one of the most spectacular of nature’s phenomena. The left picture shows a herd of stars makes tracks across northern lights in a time exposure taken when the temperature reached minus 58° F. [minus 50° C.].” Northern lights is the name of a light phenomenon often seen in the northern regions. The lights have been around since Earth formed an atmosphere -the dinosaurs saw it, early humans saw it and our descendants will se it. The scientific name for the phenomenon is “Aurora Borealis”, aurora for short. Auroras are caused by the interaction of energetic particles (electrons and protons) of the solar wind with atoms of the upper atmosphere. Such interaction is confined for the most part to high latitudes in oval-shaped zones that surround Earth’s magnetic poles and maintain a more or less fixed orientation with respect to the Sun. During periods of low solar activity, the auroral zones shift poleward. During periods of intense solar activity, auroras occasionally extend to the middle latitudes; for example, the aurora borealis has been seen as far south as 40° latitude in the United States. Auroral emissions typically occur at altitudes of about 100 km (60 miles); however, they may occur anywhere between 80 and 250 km (about 50 to 155 miles) above Earth’s surface.
