It started out great with the sky full of quick shifting Northern Lights and even some color change--but then it just fizzled out and stopped!

The Northern Lights were quite active tonight! I missed out on photographing the most active display (it always seems to be more active whenever you're still on the way to your destination, or setting up the camera...) but still got some nice images. We weren't expecting the display, I was lucky a friend alerted me!

Photo details: Canon EOS 350D, ISO 400, f/5, 20-25s exposure
