Aurora: 20110805 (triple CME) -- Explored

    Newer Older

    Canon EOS 50D, Sigma 30mm ƒ/1.4

    This aurora was very bright and I couldn't make out a lot of rays, mostly just green flare, but here is one of the exceptions.

    If you like this, you might like my aurora set.

      A beautiful sight, and a beautiful photo! I've seen the Aurora a few times from my former home on Lake Erie, but I doubt I'll ever see them here in the Carolinas. I get a great deal of enjoyment from all of your photos. Thank You.

      Wow! This was with the moon in the sky or had it set? I see the K index hit 8 last night in Boulder. Very nice!

      You are very welcome, and thank you in turn for spending time with my photos, I really appreciate it.

      The moon had set, it was about 10º below the horizon by this point.
