The Northern Lights

August 18, 2003

I took four rolls of film of this show.  All my photos flopped.  I should have shot between 15-20 seconds for each photo, but did much less.  Time to learn and better gauge the brightness of each display.

This photo is taken looking west - at the hydrogen arc.  These scene - as the one below - is very similar to the display on August 2, 2002.  You can see a meteor streak through the sky on the upper right side of the photograph.

This photograph is taken looking south-southeast.  Mars is pictured in the lower left side of the photograph.  This scene is very similar to one in which I received the Astronomy Picture of the day.  http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap020805.html

Looking east-northeast at the moon - just above the horizon.

Back.
