Northern Lights… softly

On the weekend there was a minor geomagnetic storm which enveloped the Earth for a couple of days.  Around midnight on Sunday I could see a green glow along the northern horizon so I walked down to the Elbow River.  It runs near my backyard and I was quickly down at the water.  A couple of hours saw a few sprites stretch away from thick Aurora band which stayed low in the sky.  However the Northern Lights were comfortable doing a slow waltz on this night.  Next time I’ll hope for a more energetic dance but I certainly enjoyed the quiet beauty that was shared.

  4. Do you live in some other fantastical world, Christopher? You often share such stunning photos from near/around your own home. How fortunate you live where you do! This wins a top prize from my appreciative eye.

    Strikingly beautiful. I’ve never seen the Northern Lights up close and personal so I appreciate your photo. It’s hypnotic. Thanks for posting it.

    • Me too – I try to get out to see them whenever the alerts fly! My son and I watched this storm when it first started and there was a sharply defined arch that stretched over the middle of the sky (may have been STEVE) before the northern horizon began to glow. They are always unique whenever they show up.
