We had planned to shoot the milky way in an area nearby without much light pollution. It is hard to find dark sky, but my eyes and my camera can see so much more there. I even managed to capture this meteorite as it burned up in our atmosphere.
The aurora showed up on Sep 20, 2017. A friend had posted it on Facebook, so I grabbed the camera and went out to see it.
By the time I got the camera set up to shoot this timelapse, it had dimmed a little. But persistence pays off and the lights began to dance.
The lights of Moose Jaw and Regina lit up the clouds that were passing. My battery wasn’t fully charged because I had already been out shooting the milky way. Once the battery died, I headed inside to warm up.
