Hi a.beyer -- this is the first I've seen such a display of sun light as well. Very different, but the Alaskans are used to seeing it, I've been told. Thanks for your Like.

Hi Urias -- so sorry for the late response, I've been busy doing other things it seems, and neglecting my photographic friends. Thanks for your Christmas blessing. Appreciate it, and a wonderful and blessed 2014 to you as well. Sue
