Well, the aurora made a pretty good showing last night! It sounds like most everyone in Minnesota had cloudy skies but lucky for me the clouds didn't move in to my area until after the aurora faded. These images were all captured between 11:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. At about 11:45 I noticed the moon was coming up, so I made a couple of exposures of the moon as well as the northern lights. These were all shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II. All were shot with a Canon EF 17-40 lens except for the last one, which was shot with a Canon EF 24-105 lens. Exposure times were 25 to 30 seconds, ISO's ranged from 640 to 1250.
