The desire to snag a big Aurora isn't shared by everyone. But for many of us there's a powerful drive to view this beauty in person -- face to face, eye to sky.

It's weird. Chasing it can be an emotional thing. It’s a back burner, front burner, no burner, I got burned burner story that's different for everyone.

If you have a good one, we'd love to hear it.

I bet everyone would.
