I heard there were solar flares yesterday so kept my eye to the sky last night and was not disappointed. Between 10pm and 11pm I stood outside with my camera at the ready on it’s tripod and I was rewarded with a few good shots. The moon was just rising so I didn’t have a dark sky but it created a beautiful effect with the aurora. While I was out in the dark I kept hearing noises in the bush so that was creeping me out until I heard a splash….it was just a beaver. Then more noise in a tree so I shone my flashlight on it and suddenly saw something jump out of it into the next tree! It was a flying squirrel! I knew they were in our area but had never seen on before. So it was a good night to be outside watching the aurora….especially with no bugs and not in the negative temperatures yet!
Here they are over my Shack.
Then over the house. They got very active for a few minutes then just died out.
Look to the sky tonight where you are and see if you can see them! I’m hoping they will be good again tonight.
