Sean Lecomber and Yumi Nagashima are highly-charged when they discuss if the Northern Lights – the Aurora Borealis – aren't worth the fuss.

Sean Lecomber believes the Northern Lights have a bad latitude. 

Did you know they have Southern lights that can be seen from Australia? Yeah you don't hear much about those do you. Why? Because Australia is warm and beautiful. You don't have to look up at the sky when there's fun things to do on the ground.- Sean Lecomber

But Yumi Nagashima says she's seen the light and loves it!

Japanese love coming to see the spectacle in the sky because all we see in Tokyo sky are tall buildings, air pollution and 9 am to midnight office workers' despair.- Yumi Nagashima
