When I was sitting next to the fire and had the Aurora dancing above me I felt like it could have been 100 years ago. I wonder what the people thought when they saw this phenomena in the old days. Old stories says that the Sami people thought the Aurora was home for the spirits of the dead and that we should show respect for the Aurora.
