Aurora Borealis seen from just east of Marquette, MI on Sunday Feb 26th, during a G2/G3 storm. Incredible colors, I was able to glimpse the greens and reds to the naked eye! My first time shooting and stitching panoramas, worked quite well.
Nikon D500, Nikon 16-80mm f2.8 lens. 16mm, f2.8, iso 1600, 6" or 10". Bortle 3.
Lucky me that I can go outside on this lonely little mountain top and see the colors of the far distant northern lights from a low light pollution vantage point in upstate New York northwest of Albany.
It is really fun to let my eyes adjust and watch out towards the north and see the colors change. It is like a concert happening far in the distance that I long for better seats, but the energy in the air is so lovely and refreshing. It was about 28 degrees this night.
Dim Aurora visible in long-exposure photograph during the G3 storm yesterday, from Southern WI near Middleton. Despite bright town lights right at due north, the green glow is visible, as well as telltale backlighting of the clouds to the right of the telephone pole.
A bit underwhelming, but this still constitutes my first-ever photography of the Aurora.
I happened to be shooting the comet Neowise in mid to late July (2020) on Lake Vermillion when I started to notice the faint glow of what I thought was light pollution in the distance. Looking at the map and knowing there shouldn't be any light pollution, I soon realized it was the start of an aurora. I was pretty excited to see colors starting to show up on the viewfinder, so I sat around and dealt with the mosquitoes for as long as I could. These are my once in a lifetime lucky shots from that night. Makes me wish I was a better photographer and had been a little more prepared.
Another beautiful night on the Alberta prairies. 30 km NE of Edmonton. A chilly -4 with very little wind. A few clouds moved about but nothing to serious. This was a very slow moving display which touched both West and East horizons. Fantastic overhead show! www.InFocusImagery.com
This was a fantastic show on the Alberta Prairies in Canada! A crystal clear night and a comfortable 3 deg C. The HSS arrived as predicted and put on a great display. Even as the darkness of night faded into dawn the Aurora was still visible at 5:00am MST.
