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.
