It was supposed to be cloudy, yesterday night. Fortunatly, it was clear sky for 30 minutes. So, I went with new workers at the Rehabilitation Center of Salluit to watch the northern lights. It was the first experience for almost everyone. We had the chance to watch, for a short time, the geomagnetic storm.
