I am writing an article on pilots encounter with UFO´s. The stiff Germans at Lufthansa recently had the guts to report very strange flashes of lights in the nightsky over Canada. So I am hopeing for comments and suggestions from U pilots pherhaps on further reading on that subject. :cool:

Gov, wise up. You see the "Northern Lights" at any northern latitude under the right conditions. Couple of years back could I saw them over the alps, looking to the North.On one memorable occasion, on the ground on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal at Elsmere Port.

doubledolphins - I suspect you've been spending too long underwater! :D :D :D If you look carefully at Mammamia's original posting you'll see that his place of abode is, in fact, Iceland - hence my comment! :eek: :rolleyes: :eek:

Time to worry is when you see the Aurora Australis in Iceland. ;)

Keep in mind that remote controlled UAVs may be sharing your piece of the sky. Single engine turbojet powered contraptions such as the "Global Hawk" can operate across the Atlantic, linger over Europe 6 hours and return to USA nonstop. :D
