Aurora / Meteor Shower Images Aurora / Meteor Shower Images Update: We have now come out of one of the lowest Solar Minimums on record. The cycle for lows and highs of solar activity occur roughly every 11 years. We are now experiencing recent solar flares which have unleashed Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) and once again we are experiencing Northern Lights that we have not seen (at least at lower latitudes) for many years. Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) from sunspots are usually responsible for the geomagnetic storms which produce the Aurora Borealis displays. You never know when a sunspot might unleash an Earth directed CME!

Our Favourite Photos of 2011 by Destination This past year was an interesting one. We got to re-visit some places we had already been but more importantly we got to take in some of our dream destinations for the first time.

So sit back with a cup of coffee and come travel with us for a few moments.
