It is nice when you can view the Northern Lights from inside, especially when it is -27F and -50+ windchill outside.

Photo details: Canon XS 1000D at 18mm, ISO 800, and exposures of 30 Seconds.

Beautiful auroras tonight - they were not in the mood for dancing, but at times the strong green light in the north made the ice glow green too.

Photo details: Nikon D3, Nikkor 20mm f/2,8, various exposures

Incredibly strong, at times flickering as fast as flames. Could use the auroras to see the buttons on the camera, with no other light source. The display started with a few simple lines, which after a while lost control and started dancing all over the sky. Some red hues appeared as well, something I have never seen before. Just indescribably awesome experience. Shot with Nikon D3.
