Thank you and have an IVH night
Hello, my fellow venthooligans! Welcome to another Thursday night edition of the IVH. The place on Dkos where the really hip and cool kids hang out. Sometimes. I heard that somewhere.
Tonight, in cities from Boulder (where really uber cool kids do hang out, maybe) to Bangor (really uber cool wannabe kids hang out here because it's a name just begging innuendo, I think) might get to see a real, actual Aurora Borealias! Yep, I read about it last night when I googled it because I thought I remembered that our superstar venthooligan, Man Oh Man, once danced under that name. Man earned superstar status because he hosts not one, but two IVH Diaries. Two straight nights! And on one of those nights he just doubles up his diarist duties by producing a diary called OND. Ok, what the hell was I talking about? Oh yeah, Aurora Borealis. It's coming! Read all about it! From some source in Boulder: Space weather experts say a powerful solar storm may cause the aurora borealis to appear in the skies as far south as Colorado and even New Mexico tonight, a rare occurrence.
"It comes down to Boulder less than 10 times every 12 years," said Bill Peterson, a research associate with CU's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics. "This will probably be the last chance this year." **10 times in 12 years doesn't strike me as rare.** My google search led me to a news story from Detroit Free Press The aurora borealis, or northern lights, could be visible in the Detroit area if conditions ... Southeast Michigan residents might get a visual treat tonight. ... potentially be visible as far south as Pennsylvania, Iowa and Oregon. However, no news source in Oregon confirms it.
Wanna talk about something else? Craig's guests tonight are Patton Oswalt and Hannah New.
