Amazing Northern Lights!

There are an abundance of videos available that would make learning come alive for all students, and particularly students learning English or students with reading difficulties. Rather than reading about the Northern Lights, what excitement to see the Northern Lights from a real video! Enjoy this amazing video:

Earth | Time Lapse View from Space, Fly Over | NASA, ISS from Michael K├Ânig on Vimeo.

This Video is from the site, Vimeo described by Wikipedia as "a video-sharing website on which users can upload, share, and view videos. It was founded by Zach Klein and Jake Lodwick in November 2004. The name Vimeo was created by co-founder Jake Lodwick and is a play on the word video, inserting the word "me" as a reference to the site's exclusive dedication to user-made video, and is also an anagram of "movie."[3] Vimeo does not allow gaming videos,[4] pornography, or anything not created by the user to be hosted on the site.[5]
The basic membership is free and includes:
High quality video
500MB/week upload space
Upload 1 HD video/week
3 albums, 1 group, 1 channel
No bandwidth or time limits
Basic video player customization
Password-protected videos
This is a great opportunity for teachers and students to not only search out great videos, but to have a place other than YouTube to post videos.
