Aurora Timelapse July 17, 2017

The forecast was for KP5 last night, so I decided to try to capture a timelapse of the aurora borealis in the night sky. It was a little cloudy, but they were supposed to move away, so I set up hoping for the best. The yellow glow in the distance is the lights of Regina. This series of photos was taken between about midnight and 3:30am. It was an 8 second exposure every 30 seconds for a total of 463 images. I love to see how the sky changes over time!

These are some still shots from the beginning to near the end when  the rising sun began to lighten the night sky.
