Lots of memories came flooding back though from when I saw the northern lights for the first time.
That was many years ago, during my ‘travelling years’, when on that occasion I was in Canada and Saskatchewan to be precise.
It was dark, and I was driving across the prairie province to get to a church, where I was preaching that evening.
I suddenly became aware of vivid bright lights in the sky, so much so that I pulled over and got out the car to see what they were.
It was only then that it hit me, they were the northern lights. I stood there for some time, marvelling at the sky, before I got back in the car and continued my journey.
