Aurora

I am one to occasionally partake in the stereo-opticon images of the sky at night. Galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, and the northern lights. Living in MA, one is not often granted much of a display of said lights. In fact, I had never seen them in MA until last fall, as I laid down to go to sleep around 1:30am. Luckily, my window faces northwest, and I saw what looked like moving distant fog outside.

Dashing down the stairs (freaking out my guinea pigs en route), I grabbed my digital camera and tripod and was treated to an amazing display. They were bright enough to see a little green color with the naked eye, but the camera brought out all sorts of color. To see the best few of my pictures, go here.

The craziest thing about the display was that it moves so much. Waves of light pulsate across the sky, it was truely insane. It's a good reason to want to move way up north.

  • I think I already saw those pictures. I remember that night I spent a few hours outside just staring at the sky.

    CJ was not as excited as me, which i couldn't understand. We didn't get much in the way of color - but it did sort of take up the entire sky which was amazing.
