On Nov 12, 2003 I was travelling north on US 67 from Little Rock, AR to Illinois. Normally I would cut across at AR 14 or take US 412 east to I-55, but decided to go north on Rt 67. At 6:30 pm with the sun being down and with no "light pollution", I decided that the drive might yield a look at the solar flare via the Northern Lights even at this southerly latitude. I believe I did see the northern lights or some reflection of the solar flare off of the ice cap. However I saw some very bright white clouds that appeared to change shape and brightness, unlike the northen lights which danced around these clouds did not change shape or move as rapidly as the northern lights. The clouds whiteness intensified several times and could be easily masked by the lights in a town or a yard light on the farm. I had observed several times a changing light(s) colored red, then green, then blue then an intense whitish-blue color. This light and several others were very slow moving, but nonetheless moved and always disappeared when reaching the large Fertilzer barn facilities.
