2018 - Northern Lights


#101

Still sitting in the 2 and 3’s, which is unlike we will see them. Way north of me, about 6 hours, they have been taking photographs of the northern lights in the last week.

A brilliant article, thanks Terri! From what I’ve read there I’ve been doing it just about right… now all I need is the Aurora to come out and play when I’m in the correct location! :rofl:

I’m sure this is “your time” and you will get brilliant photos!!! I copied this article for future use.

I’m going to print it for reference! I will have little to no internet signal where I’m going…

So we can talk about you while you’re away? :rofl: Oh wait a minute. You’ll still see everything when you get back. Oh well… :zipper_mouth_face:

LOL, no chance, Jim! There will be the odd time when I’ll be able to get online - I need to be able to check the aurora forecasts for the evenings!

Oh man! :grin: :roll_eyes:

It is getting much closer to my area:

If I lived where you do, just as the “lights” reached me the clouds would move in and obscure the sky. (And Mother Nature would say, “Gotcha again, Jim!” :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Happened a few weeks ago…seemed like it was clear less than 40 km from me…but not over my head!

The closest we have been so far. I hope the skies are clear later tonight.
