A Grand Display (cont.)

November 5-6, 2001
Photographs taken between 7:15 p.m., November 5, 2001 & 12:15 a.m., November 6, 2001

Monday, November 5, 2001 - 9:10 p.m.: I move to another location on the farm.  The coyotes are howling (maybe at the northern lights).  Activity is still strong.  I note clouds moving in from the west.  Luckily, the ground and fields are dry and there's no snow.  I have access to most of the farm, except, I avoid driving where there are rocks and tall grass.  I also realize that it's warm out for November 5.  All I need to wear is a light jacket.

Monday, November 5, 2001 - 9:25 p.m.: I drive to the home farm and take more photographs of the northern lights, the moon and Jupiter.  Activity is good - wow!

Monday, November 5, 2001 - 9:50 p.m.: I go inside the house and watch the weather forecast at 10:10 p.m.  There are reports of people seeing "red" northern lights in the northern tier of states. I then went outside to see more activity.  I photographed the moon and Jupiter, seen through a red glow to the east-northeast.
