Aurora spiral over Norway
The wonderful green spiral was snapped over the rock of Bleik Island 300km inside the Arctic circle. The image was taken from the neighbouring isle of Andoya, a peat covered expanse with some mountains rising above the bogs. The colour is emitted by excited atoms of nitrogen a hundred kilometres up as they are tickled by the energy of a solar flare event. Bleik is famed for one of Europe’s largest puffin colonies.

The first time Don Pardo was seen in a sketch.  This actually was the monologue for the season 5 season finale hosted by Buck Henry, the final episode with the original cast and the end of the first five years.  Don played a guy named “Ron Waldo” who could do a spot on imitation of Don Pardo.  As many times over the years we would hear his voice, we only rarely saw him on camera
