First Light Show of the Season

Aurora 8/31

The Aurora Borealis put on quite a show Wednesday night. The wave of green and magenta light, flowed and pulsed among the starlight, filling much of our sky. It was the first I have seen the Northern Lights this season, and I was not prepared. I didn’t want to risk taking the dead Go-Pro off of the tripod, so these photos were snapped free-hand with the cell phone.

Eventually, the lights faded from overhead, and moved off to brighten the horizon for close to another hour. It felt good to welcome the Aurora back to our night skies.
