First of all...CONGRATS to you and your boyfriend, Sean! May you have many, many years of happiness!
Thank you, Ronn, for taking the time to show us the beauty of your life! I am in Oklahoma so it is rare, if not unheard of to see such beautiful auroras here. I love seeing them each night and witnessing a part of the universe! Thank you so very much!

Thank you all for the kind words and for sharing with us how this site and the webcam and live stream have played a part of your lives.
Sean, what an amazing story and we're so glad we were able to somehow play a role in that amazing moment and help you pull it off. We'd love to make an engagement photo under the Aurora for the two of you if you are still in town. Let us know! :-)
We're blessed to be able to share this stuff and blessed that so many of you have helped contribute to make this happen and keep this webcam going! Thank you! All of you!

Just loved it. So wonderful to see the movement. Please continue, whenever you can. The work you both put is is very much appreciated. Alaska is a long way away for me (40 hours at least travelling time) so unbelievable to be able to see the Aurora live, The commentary and audience excitement add to it.
