Northern Lights!!!

Recommended Posts

Just got home and saw some northern lights tonight. Hadn't seen any in a few years so that was a nice treat. Hopefully someone is out with a camera tonight.

Nah, Northern Lights can be seen almost anytime of the year there Mike. I missed them last night but here is a pic of some from September 2008

The last two years have been down years in cyclical sunspot activity, and it's the sunspots/coronal ejection that produce our solar wind, in turn producing the aurora when those charge particles hit our atmosphere. As Paul said, summer auroras can be just as pretty as winter ones.

Hopefully the cycle is back on an upswing. I've been wanting to do more aurora photography. Sounds like it's time to resubscribe to one of those aurora alert e-mail services.
