"Steve" appears in McBride!

With all the northern lights putting on a show here in the Robson Valley over the last few nights. Matthew Wheeler was lucky enough to catch a image of "Steve".
Steve" is the purple arc bisecting the sky. For many years, northern sky watchers have reported this luminous form occasionally dancing among regular auroras. It was widely called a "proton arc" until researchers pointed out that protons probably had nothing to do with it. So members of the Alberta Aurora Chasers group gave it a new name: "Steve."
No one fully understands the underlying physics of the purple ribbon. However, one of the European Space Agency's Swarm satellites recently flew overhead while Steve was active, providing some clues. To read more about "Steve" check out www.spaceweather.com
These incredible photos were shot here in McBride by Matthew Wheeler

Robson Valley TourismThey are pretty incredible photos, he brought the images over to show us today, there was a 70 frames video taken over 20 minutes...it was pretty neat, the bottom of the spike remained still and the feather parts moved.

I took a trip out to Dome Creek today to help celebrate the 101st birthday of the Dome Creek Post Office. The currant post mistress, Wendy Howe has been working there for over 33 years. It may be small but it has delivered its share of mail over the years. During the years before the highway was built the mail came out from Prince George by train. Now its delivered by truck. The Dome Creek Post office handles the mail for Bend, Dome Creek and Walker Creek.

When a woman decides she's going to do something....you better believe she will.

Here, Tanya sends a rock to the bullseye, just like she planned, for the Rich team vs the Beerdas, Friday night.
