Aurora Night - I'm Sorry !!TOP!!
Chandler: Yes, yes I did, but what I didn't say was what I was about to say,what I wanted to say was, uh... would you like to go out with me sometime, thankyou,goodnight. (He walks back to the others but she calls him back.)
Aurora Night - I'm Sorry
Aurora: ...Luckily none of the bullets hit the engine block. So, we made itto the border, but just barely, and I- ...I've been talking about myself all night long,I'm sorry. What about you? Tell me one of your stories.
Aurora: Why can't we just have what we have now? Why can't we just talk, andlaugh, and make love, without feeling obligated to one another... and up until tonight Ithought that's what you wanted too.
SAM: Okay, here we go. What's up, TikTok? Here's a day in the life of my life as a Critical Role ad wunderkind. At 6:45, I get to my station. Here's my desk mates, Ray-Ray and Texas T. Say hi, guys! Then I check out my assignment for the night. Looks like tonight is Thorum. They handcraft unique wedding bands out of everything from meteorite to whiskey barrels, #whiskeylife, #drunkfingers, #spacethumbs.
MATT: -- region of Wildemount, in which during that time of year, which you recall, the sun was low a lot longer through the day, and so your nights were more, you know, extended. During that time period, you indeed watched these shifting colors and they grew more intense as the days went on before reaching this incredible display. They just moved and then eventually faded over the next week or so.
LAURA: It's the same time zone, right? It is night there. Oh, maybe they sleep during the day because the moon, Ruidus is up at night. Last time I tried to do this, the last two times I've tried to do this, it's been busy when we go and that's in the middle of the night.
MATT: 24. 24 is very, very good. Okay. You concentrate just as the sun begins to set. Ruidus is in the sky. Both moons, at different speeds, do at times meet and cross each other during the day and night, but in a weird way, you feel like that empowers you in the moment. As you try and concentrate, that sense of redness surrounds you. You then feel this immediate (whoosh), this gravitational pull at an incredible speed. Then, (swirling wind) the red dust surrounds you. You stand there, drifting in the midst of the cloud. The familiar state of your dream, the storm that chased you for so many nights in recent times, you now stand in the middle. No ground, no field, no farm, just you and the motes of light that represent your companions as they are pulled alongside you.
MATT: As the tension of the evening's conversation sits palpable across the cabin of the skyship, the Silver Sun, and the tension that rides across the arcane energies that swim through the atmosphere of Exandria above, another night of your journey comes to a close. The solstice is in 10 days.

I'm the one with teeth up my-- (calm music) Subscribe. (calm music)
MATT: 11, all right. Another day with fine weather, though that same aurora continues to greet you in pretty much all directions. But, a day's travel without issue. You are beginning to see the edge of the Taloned Highlands now, and pass by the--
TALIESIN: As we're de-tangling from the mast, I have that-- I know I got really drunk and I'm pretty sure I probably said some stupid shit, so whatever I said, I'm definitely sorry and a little, I don't know. I'm sure it was bad. Hi, sorry. I owe you something, not a drink. I owe you something, sorry.
MATT: At night, it is like a natural celebration of color and light. The night sky now around you, as the auroras are more visible, the leylines themselves are breathtakingly beautiful. And matched with the knowledge of what's to come, deeply ominous. You can see, occasionally, those pulses still (electrical arcs) traveling through. (electrical pulses) They're just brighter. And more recurring.
MATT: Well, the evening comes to a close. The aurora itself is extremely bright now. It's like from all perspectives on the deck of the ship, you are swimming through the ethereal sea. There is just curtains of color and energy and sparkles and flashes. It is a dreamscape around you on all sides with the backdrop of the black, starlit sky. The beauty is transitioning slightly more and more into terrifying with the intensity of the aurora, and its shifting energy is now becoming more and more present as the face of magic across Exandria is changing like it does about once every two centuries or so. Finishing out the night, that brings us to the next day. Four days 'til the solstice.
MARISHA: I love you more than anything. You know, I had an amusing conversation with Ashton the other night. And they asked, well, commented about how odd it is that I'm the more grounded and secure one.
MATT: All right. Those of you who are still awake on the deck at night before going to retire for the evening, the network of arcane threads that wrap around the sky over the Hellcatch is a sight few see in their lifetime, and that weight is felt. And amongst the tension of what's to come, you also can't help but appreciate the beauty of something on this scale, removed from the context of those that wish to abuse it. And in the silence, just the sound of gentle wind blowing by and the occasional shout of a drunken Ashton, and the beautiful tunes of the dulcimer played across the front of the damaged but holding Silver Sun, the night before the Solstice comes to a close.
MATT: And with the morning comes the soft cloudy dust-filled skies of a gentle storm, as you begin your final day's journey to the site where everything is to happen. That's where we'll finish tonight's episode.
MATT: But on that note, we'll see y'all for what's happening next time. Until then, have a wonderful night. Thank you so much for joining us. We love you very much, and is it Thursday yet? Good night.
At 5,280ft above sea level, Denver has an obvious advantage when it comes to stargazing: extra elevation means clearer night skies! The capital of Colorado has other advantages that make it a stellar stargazing destination with wild mountains to the west, sweeping plains to the east, and passionate locals who protect and love the outdoors.
Golden Gate Canyon Park is a great spot to experience the outdoors, day or night. A 45-minute drive west of Denver, there are also some excellent stargazing spots. Notably, these include Panoramic Point Scenic Overlook and Aspen Meadows, both of which locals report offer unincumbered night sky views. If you want to enjoy a full night of stargazing, book a cabin or yurt near the park.
High in the mountains near Estes Park, Rocky Mountain National Park draws visitors from around the country in search of mountain trails and wildlife. By night, the sky above the park comes alive with seemingly infinite stars. The park has five campgrounds to choose from.
Rising incongruously from the scrubby lowlands and foothills of the surrounding countryside, Great Sand Dunes National Park is a unique Colorado destination in its own right. By night, the 150,000-acre park is isolated from light pollution and perfect for stargazing. Free ranger programs in the summer often focus on the starry skies above.

Last night was a simply beautiful night in Fairbanks. We received a lot of snow over Tuesday and Wednesday, and typical windless conditions in Fairbanks have left it hanging on the trees. A 90% full moon floated to the south over the Tanana and the temperatures hung around 8 below. It was the kinda of night you could read a book by! I was out chasing the aurora, and the data online looked AMAZING, however, I think a northern facing magnetic field kept the show at bay. In the end, a smudge of aurora was the best it got.
Thanks, Jess! The night is certainly dynamic in its amount of color! Just the other night I was shooting and the moon and trees, the camera was pulling a lot of color like you said. But then the high clouds started to roll in, and the filtered light removed almost all color from the images. Black and White at night!
I can't breathe. I have my ID right here. My name is Elijah McClain. That's my house. I was just going home. I'm an introvert. I'm just different. That's all. I'm so sorry. I have no gun. I don't do that stuff. I don't do any fighting. Why are you attacking me? I don't even kill flies! I don't eat meat! But I don't judge people, I don't judge people who do eat meat. Forgive me. All I was trying to do was become better. I will do it. I will do anything. Sacrifice my identity, I'll do it. You all are phenomenal. You are beautiful and I love you. Try to forgive me. I'm a mood Gemini. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. Ow, that really hurt. You are all very strong. Teamwork makes the dream work. Oh, I'm sorry I wasn't trying to do that. I just can't breathe correctly. 041b061a72
