I did a search just to see how many have commented or clicked a screen shot of the northern lights effect in FS9, and I guess this is rather passe', but I was impressed. I've been flying FS9 for a few years now and this is the first time it happened to me.
Nice job Aces! They looked very real. I spent 8 years in Alaska and I attest to their accuracy to the real thing most often. Occasionally you'll see more defined curtain effects in Alaska, but most often they are just like the ones in the sim.
This particular flight was an early morning flight in a Mooney from Anchorage to Kodiak. I was looking out the window and enjoying the early morning sky (Pic 1) and it came alive. Of course the screen shots don't really show the nice dancing effect FS9 gave them, but I kept clicking and ended up with about twenty shots, of which I'll share five.
FS9 continually amazes me for it's stability and design.
