In ancient times the northernmost region of the habitable world - hence, any distant, unknown or mysterious land.

Spaceweather.com: December 2006 Aurora Gallery

By Aussiegirl

Spaceweather.com sent me an email with the following note: Solar wind streams buffeting Earth's magnetosphere have sparked high-latitude auroras several times this month--notably Dec. 6th-8th and again on Dec. 12th. The really big display occured on Dec. 14th when a CME hit Earth and sparked a severe geomagnetic storm.
Be sure to go to this link for 5 pages of spectacular photos of auroras -- the one accompanying this post is but one.
