    On an msnbc.com article...


    I think apple should pick this up as a tag line - maybe even incorporate it into their next media blitz! :D

    Sounds like the name of a special edition G5 cube.

    "The G5 Storm".

    I heard that it might even make the Northern Lights appear in Utah. I've never see them before, so I hope they do.

    To see some GREAT pict of the northern lights go to www.spaceweather.com and find the 'galary' on the page. Lots of fun to look at the pretty colors...:cool:

    I've been to Alaska in the winter and seen great auroras - but it would have been cool to see some here in DC - but not with all the light pollution.

    I just hope that the astronauts on the ISS stay safe and don't get fried.

    I have the same problem here in Boston. Our local meterologist thought seeing the Northern lights was a possiblity if we get rid of the clouds. Those that live in the suburbs might have a chance.

    I also hope that our astronauts in the ISS will be safe and sound. My hope would be that they have planned for such occurrences.
