Big Sky

For those kind enough to be viewing my humble attempts at recording this basically un-capturable magnificent natural marvel, who have not actually witnessed it firsthand, ..... I think the scale of this image, with some two thirds of the entire sky shown, and my van, plus another vehicle, in the picture .... gives a good approximation of how it feels to be standing, in awe, beneath the magnetic magic of an active Aurora.

Dawson City, Sept. 15.

Canon XTI, 8mm Peleng lens, 6 seconds.
