Aurora - 11-5-2001


We were treated to a massive display of Northern Lights in early November.  It was even visible from my light bound home in Woodhaven.  I got a call from Harry Juday that alerted me to the event at about 10:30 in the evening.  I dashed outside and set up a camera on a tripod to record the show.

All of these shots are taken with a Canon F1 camera and a Tameron 17mm f3.5 lens mounted on a heavy Bogen Tripod.  The exposures were roughly 30 seconds long and I used a roll of Kodak Supra 400 film.  the excessive lighting around my home washed out the colors to a disappointing degree but even with the lights you can see some structure here.
