Summary: It's northern autumn and that means it's aurora season. All of the auroras displayed on this page were sparked by solar wind streams flowing from coronal holes. See also the September 2003 aurora gallery.

L. Taylor: "Being inspired by all the 'water reflecting shots' contributed to your Spaceweather gallery by others of late, I decided to give it a try myself. The subject chosen for my shots is the Clover Bar EPCOR power plant (which I've wanted to take a shot of reflecting in these stocked fish ponds for sometime now). I'm quite pleased with the results."
