Very nice!

I remember in 1966 at the State Fair in Palmer the Lights came out and covered the entire sky from edge to edge, everyone left the lighted area of the booths and went out and sat on the field in the darker areas to watch the lights that were evey color. They ran like that for a week! Never seen them like that since except up farther North, but even that not very often.

Captured on my Weather Station's AllSky Camera last night. Obviously I need to tweak some settings such as slowing down the frame rate for next time, but at least it caught it!

A couple of mine from last night, for a while around 9pm the aurora just filled the sky out here and we didn't even know which way to shoot. I'm shooting with a Canon 28-80mm so its not so fast and tends to blur up easily. I'm seeing new glass in my future.
Anyways ISO 400 15-30sec exposure lens set to infinity

Nice job all of you! Perhaps it was the aurora your heard? They sould like rice krispies!

Mt brother scored some really nice reflection shots on Knik River near Palmer early this morning.

So they make sounds, too? That is so cool!

Here my picture from Friday, Oct 12th.

The angle is kind of weird. I didn't have a tripod, so I was just laying down in the driveway with my camera perched up against a book.

That is a great picture for not having a tripod! Friday night was amazing! I was so lucky to be able to spend hours out on my porch photographing the lights. A far cry from last year when we had to drive out of the village and stand out on the tundra in -45 temps. This was downright decadent!
