August 3rd 2010 Minnesota Aurora / Northern Lights

**EDIT....Finally got around to fixing the shots from August 3rd**

Another decent shot at northern lights has come and gone. Between being on the tail of the the CME hit and some stupid high level clouds, this was pretty much a non-event.

I knew tonight would have some potential and several of the parameters looked good so I went out on the deck to take a test shot looking north. The aurora was there but really faint.

Headed up to the Sherburne NWR to try and escape at least some of the light pollution but as luck would have it, the bZ index was heading north in a hurry and the cloud made what auroras were there look like really nothing more than a glowing green blob mixed in with the clouds.
