I though AURORA was a lion ... perhaps its a LION BAR,
but may be that's where they get their drinks of Kia Ora.
I don't wish to seem picky, but you say "a cosmic phenomena".
Phenomena is plural ... did you mean phenomenon or phenomena.
I mean, if we are looking for a group of celestial events, such as
comets, rather than a specific comet .... eg meteor or Leonids.
Know what I mean, nudge nudge ..... eh, bit of a goer .... eh (*)) (*))
The heavens are full of phenomena, and the towns are full
of takeaways ....
We have a Take Away and Bar near me called ' The Northern Lights ' get quite a nice meal there as well.
Yes, I know about the radio waves, seen the 'Northen Lights too a few times whilst at sea, and I have also seen St Elmo's fire on the cross trees of the foremast one night, a football shape of green fire, very impressive sight.
Never got to see St Elmo's Fire,seen a lot of the Northern Lights after being in Alaska for almost four years. We had a special B-17 bomber fitted out with every kind of radio and weird stuff,had a crew of eight,all they did was make flights checking out the NL and to monitor Ivan who was next door across the Ice bridge.
I am not sure whether the borealis could be described as cosmic,
perhaps celestial in the Greek sense. I remember one year, 1980
I think, when the sun spot count was so high, I was receiving
New Zealand radio here in Penzance, the sky was radiating with
red curtains and sprays. I know this happened before about 1958.
Not as spectacular as the arctic displays, I am sure.
R736476 named the ship 1st HMS Aurora , Arethusa class cruiser of 1936 named after Roman Goddess of Dawn.Sold and taken away by Nationalist Chinese in 1948 renamed CHUNG KING.then absconded to communists as TCHOUNG KING, a.k.a HSUANG HO, PEI CHING, finally KUANG CHOU, sorry about the clue .but all those names made me feel hungry!! well done all participants ..Ronnie
