St. Patrick's Day Aurorae
Northern light streaks, otherwise called aurorae, during the strongest solar storm of the current 11-year solar cycle. More than 60% of the night sky was covered during the storm's peak activity at 4:00 a.m. Very little post-processing was needed for this shot....indeed, it was nearly this vibrant right out of the camera.
Stay tuned in the coming days/weeks to see some large panoramas taken from this site the same night, including a couple with the Milky Way in the background. It was truly a breathtaking night!
