Here is another Blessed Nativity scene:

This type of aurora is called "Hem of His Garment," and this refers to Christ. It is unusual to see white and pink auroras.

A Blessed Nativity to you, too, Maria ! Thanks for all your hard work on this board over the past years.

Stupendous photos you found : amazing to have found one named "The Hem of His Garment". Maybe that's a good sign for healing for any and all readers here during this year of 2017 !

Christ is Born!

Glorify Him!

Unfortunately, since we are going into a Solar Minimum, there are not too many auroras being cited in the Northern Latitudes.
Below is one of the last photos and was dated January 4, 2018. I will watch tonight to see if any materialize.

Notice that the lake is not yet frozen. I guess the frigid weather from New York has not crossed the Atlantic yet.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner.

While there are no new postings of Nativity auroras this year,
I present to you a variety of You Tube videos for the Nativity of Christ.

Here is one from Fr. Panagiotes Carras with the children of his parish singing Nativity carols:

If you have any other Nativity youtube videos, please do post them.
