CME impact... I'll say! WOW! The show started slowly, very high in the sky. Then it just erupted into a beautiful intense display. It lasted about an hour. At one point the auroras went directly overhead and touched both western and eastern horizons! Images taken with a Canon 5D mark2, ISO 800-1250, 1 to 15 seconds exposures.
