I live in Edmonton, work just north of Fort McMurray :-) Picture was taken in Blacks Harbour, New Brunswick right on the Bay of Fundy.

My wife and I tried to drive to Utah Friday to see the lights but the highway we needed to take was closed due to a fatal accident.  We did not get to see them when we were in Iceland in March. I guess we are not meant to see them in person.

NO cant say that I have ever been to that neck of the woods in the province. I use to live in Fort McMurray that as far north I need go I think.

Thanks for sharing! Seeing northern lights in person is a bucket list thing for me. If I'm not mistaken that's the big dipper as well?
