This is the Aurora Borealis, best viewed much closer to the North Pole, in Alaska, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, Iceland, etc. I do believe that is a picture of one of the spirals in the the Milky Way. Click image for larger version

It is not light from stars in the Milky Way - as I recall it is from solar radiation exciting the atmospheric gasses - or some such thing

It does a similar thing if I recall to comets - the long tails of comets are simply just a tiny trail of gas excited by the sun's solar winds

Or something along those lines

Beautiful shots!!!

Correct, the shot I referenced was in post 710. That is one of the spiral arms of the Milky Way, not the pictures I posted 😊 hopefully I did not miss lead anyone.
Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving !

Vogel State Park in Georgia. Man was it cold. We had a nice spot backed up to a running mountain stream. So nice to sleep with the sound of running water. Great park. We were in site 57.

If you decide to go there, be sure to come south from Blairsville. Don't try to pull your trailer over Blood Mtn (Hwy 19/129N).

In the winter, the sound of running water can also be heard from frozen and then broken water lines in the trailer......

As a Floridian, we've never camped in any REAL cold. We always get by with just a space heater when it dips below 60. We'd like to go see snow around Christmas. Do I need to know anything special if we want to take our '75 Overlander up into the mountains? I always see people "winterizing" their campers and storing them for winter. Is there some reason we shouldn't camp in the winter?
