It sure seems like we’ve been getting more intense Aurora activity around the Keweenaw lately. This past week there was another bright display, which also included a more rare Northern Light, called Steve. Todd and Taana Blom were out there in the chill of the night, snapping photos to share with us. Todd took the first two shots with his camera and Taana captured the reflection photo with her phone camera. All three photos show the stars in the sky, but that first one of the Steve is outstanding with that red streak shooting up into the starry nightsky, with a hint of the rest of the Aurora off in the lower left corner. Nice captures for sure!

Auroras are a bit of a mystery, in my opinion, so I thought this video from MI Playground about their experience at the Mystery Spot in St. Ignace would be a good accompaniment today.

Keep voting for Lake Superior as the Best Lake in all three categories. Lake Superior is currently #3 in all three catagories.

Best Lake
Best Lake for Swimming
Best Lake for Water Sports.

Vote for the best lake in the U.S. once per day until polls close on Monday, June 5 at noon ET. No matter the outcome, we want to do our Big Lake proud.

Astronomical set! And yes… still number 4.

I blame it on hanging chads.

Would love to see the lights! Thanks for the pictures.

Hey, we're still #3 in Best Lake for Swimming and Best Lake for Water Sports!

Hey, anyone want to go in to buy the Lower Entrance Light? It'll be up for auction!

Beautiful pics as always. As far as Mystery Spot,
no thanks, my meds and hemolysis keep me
lightheaded and dizzy enough lol. Zip line, Vic
Folks.... I have to admit, I stopped voting for
the Best body of water in the world!! What people
don't know.... so much the better, they'll
becoming after it soon enough, when they need
water!! I would bet, most people don't even know
or understand the concept of the great lakes or
the U.P. outside of the Midwest and for me, that's
what makes the U.P. the greatest place on earth!!
If you don't get it... that's ok with me!! JMO

YOUNG!!! lol

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim
large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more
peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the
more peace there is in us, the more peace there
will also be in our troubled world.

U.C. my hubby won't vote. He, too, doesn't
want people to know about our lake. I think
I won't vote anymore either.

Jbuck, I'm in! Have been in Lower Entry when it was owned and manned by the coast guard.
Went to the Mystery Spot on vaca 10 years ago just before heading to Mackinac Island. It is really quite place with its illusions. I could almost believe they were real. (Well, maybe not quite!) But it is definitely fun.
