Northern Star Lights over Grand Tetons

Starry night sky over Teton Range, Grand Teton National Park. High cirrus clouds, back lighted by starlight, give the impression of an Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). Note the meteor and a portion of the Big Dipper pointing to the North Star (Polaris) in the top right corner. Taken @ 12:18 AM.
