About Me

My photo

Anything outdoors!  Tornadoes, eagles, blizzards, or auroras.  If it is in the sky, running through the woods or swimming in the water, I'm there!

So, the trick is to remove the orange light pollution and correct the yellows, OR

just find a nice dark spot up in Lake or Itasca county and not deal with all the light pollution. I feel kinda bad as a knew there was a CME coming off the sun and should have prepared a little better. Turns out this was the biggest geomagnetic storm since the awesome December 2006 show. Some interesting info in THIS ARTICLE.

All in all it was still a fun night with the northern lights in the sky and a group of howling coyotes voicing their approval of the show in the field behind me.

Nice pics Bill! It's been a LONG time since I've seen an aurora.

Nice shots Bill. Can't wait to get another show visible down here... or at least one during the summer when I can fly up to Wisconsin.
