Storyline

While Joel gives Ed golf lessons, the Indian warns him Adam is around, the never actually seen monster-prankster, blamed for all kinds of weirdness since 15 years. Passing the night in his car in the woods after diagnosing a park ranger Burns, Joel is apparently robbed, actually taken in, by very human loner Vietnam vet Adam. Chris is delighted his instinctive sculptural inspiration fits the astronomical phenomenon Aurora Borealis (northern light). Chris accepts help from lost motor-biker Bernard, and discovers they share a lot, even an identity essential. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Bernard Stevens: Those Northern Lights are some kind of weird psychic, something?
Chris Stevens: Yeah.
Bernard Stevens: What causes them to do that?
Chris Stevens: Well, this is just my guess, but I think that high speed electrons and protons from the sun are trapped in the van Allen radiation belt. Then they're channeled through the Polar Regions by the earth's magnetic field where they collide with other particles and create a brilliant luminosity.
Bernard Stevens: What does that have to do with us?
Chris Stevens: I swear man, I don't know.
