Last week the northern lights spent a couple of fine nights dancing around our skies. Aurora Borealis (or ‘Fir Chlis’ in Gaelic) was the name given to the phenomenon in 1619 by Galileo Galilei, an Italian astronomer, after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora, and the Greek god of the north wind Boreas.
From the land comes the cloth.
