Alaskan Aurora

12 Mile Pass on the Steese Highway, just outside of Central, Alaska. The temperature at the time of this display was approximately -30 F. This was taken at 14mm on a full frame sensor. The tiny trees provide some sense of scale. This incredible aroura filled nearly the entire sky. LARGE ON BLACK
