Aurora Borealis, July 14/15, 2012

Aurora Borealis

I set my cam­era up out­side at my in-laws’ farm, and set it to take 15-sec­ond expo­sures all night. I was hop­ing to catch some North­ern Lights, since the sun fired off a coro­nal mass ejec­tion on the 12th.

Thir­ty sec­onds before this pho­to, there was noth­ing.  Black sky.  Then, with­out any ramp-up, the sky turned green.

This shot is from mid­night, almost on the but­ton; prob­a­bly 12:00:30 or so.  The lights along the bot­tom are vehi­cles on the Trans-Cana­da High­way.
