“Warwick in History” – In the fall of 1827, a wonderful celestial phenomenon was visible, a magnificent exhibition of the aurora borealis. This is said never to have been surpassed since the years 1772 and 1777, when wondrous appearances were observed in the heavens. The nights of December 6 and 7, 1777, the whole sky flamed with intensely vivid crimson shafts of light of exquisite beauty, and people throughout the nights gazed upon the wonderful sight.
