Details:
I didn't expect anything big happening, especially with the moon pretty full, but then there was one of the best auroras I ever seen, a light conveyor belt of rays and spirals, so fast moving that even this 2.5sec exposure is washed out. Absolutely amazing. The picture shows the SPUD microwave telescope on the left.
