Why am I looking up on tattoo Tuesday?

I would like to see the auroras like this.  I did catch a glimpse of them on a night-time drive in the middle of New York state when I was traveling with friends between Boston and Ohio.  I also saw them briefly in a dark sky area of Ohio.  But nothing as dramatic as this video.  I don’t remember hearing any music, either.

Here are some tattoos:

What am I looking at this time?

I thought this was a marvelous photograph.  It was taken by Frank Olsen in Sortland, Norway.  Reference is SpaceWeather.com.  The photographer captured an impressive multitude of glowing things in this photo – the stars overhead, the green auroras, and the sparkling, luminescent dinoflagellates on the beach.
