Sunday Stamps # 111

Hello and welcome, on this sunny yet wintry day (Here in the USA) to Sunday Stamps # 111, opening as usual on Saturday evening, to allow more time for everyone to post.  After all, it's Sunday already in Australia and in Asia!

Our theme this week: Space. Human exploration, planets, moons, or the aurora borealis and other phenomena.

I picked this theme because of the amazing sky show in Russia of a fireball and sonic boom, on the same day that an asteroid was going to fly by Earth, but not hit us.  Thank goodness no one (I believe) was killed, though some were injured by flying glass.

Anyway, on to stamps.

I have been lucky enough to see the aurora twice.  I do not live very far North, but during two episodes when the Sun was very active, I was able to catch the aurora at my latitude.  Wonderful, though not with the colors you see here.

What colors of Space have you to share??

Theme next week:  Open, anything you wish.

I love the Aurora Borealis - I do hope to see it one day. Very beautiful stamp, too.

How lucky to see the Aurora twice, the stamp does a great job portraying it. In answer to your question mine is the colour red.

The Northern Lights were visible a lot further south in England last year. I'm still waiting to see colours as fine as those on your stamp

I've never yet seen the Aurora Borealis even though it is sometimes visible as far south as we are. Too many cloudy nights.:) It must be a wonderful sight.

I envy you that you've seen Aurora Borealis! I think that must be one of the most amazing experiences one can have! And they seem to come in different colours too :)

I want to see the Aurora Borealis, too. It is miles and oceans away from where I live but I can dream, right? For now, I have these stamps to look at and remind me of that dream :D
