I headed out to Cooking Lake Blackfoot area near Edmonton, AB to try out my new AstroTrac unit for the very first time. Instead, I spent most of the night taking Northern photos.
It was the most impressive display I've seen in years. Observed from 10:00 PM to 3:00 AM and the sky was pulsing from horizon to horizon in every direction.
We watched Juipter rise through the glowing sky, and even the ISS made a pass overhead.
After the Geomagnetic storm we were then treated to a fantastic thunderstorm with a freakish amount of ground strike lightning in it. An amazing and memorable night of observing indeed.
