Aurora treat to start off June!

 Early this morning after staying up a bit late, I happened to look outside and it was starry for the first time in a long time.  The Aurora Borealis was showing it's elusive self.

I drove up to the lake in order to try to get the most expansive view.

 Lots of streaks showing too.

 I stopped near Eholt and the colors continued to burn green. Curtains were present.

When I got home last night, I still couldn't go to sleep and this is a picture from our neighborhood.  With the streetlights, it still shone strong.  I'm so lucky to have an opportunity to go aurora hunting!  If you want to go hunting for other pics that people took last night, check it out at spaceweather!  According to the forecast, if you've got clear skies tonight, there is a 40% chance for more viewing this evening.

  1. WOW! Right in your own neighborhood? Amazing shots, Ciel. You should sell them to Natl Geo. SO GREEN! The color reminds me of Elphaba in "Wicked"!
