Last night we saw the best Northern Lights we have seen since moving up north 16 years ago. It was incredible to watch. My son even said it was better than watching TV! :) So we got out the camera, tripod and ran down to the lake. My husband took these pictures with his camera as he knew how to keep the aperture open longer on his camera. I just stood back and watched the night sky in awe.
These next 4 picture were all taken in a one minute time period so you get the idea of just how fast they were moving and changing. Note the red edge to some of the lights, I had never seen that before, they are usually just green. These photos are looking west over our house, you can also see the constellation Cassiopeia in the top right corner.
This one was taken just to the right of our house.
These next two were taken looking straight up! They pretty much ran right across the sky from east to west.
This one is was taken looking south toward the constellation Orion which we only see in winter.
And this last one towards the east which is a perfect shot of the constellation Leo.
