Chasing the Light

The other night, folks were reporting seeing the Northern Lights in the upper Midwest.  And so, last night, when the viewing was supposed to be likely to be good, a friend and I went out to a rural area to try to see them.

We didn't.  We did play with our cameras and do some timed shots.  And we played with timed shots with a flashlight moving over a parked truck.

Then my friend went home, and I drove about 30 miles north, and got out from cloud cover, but still didn't see the Northern Lights.  I did see lots of stars, but even with a slow, slow shutter speed, my camera shots are just black space.

Here's one of the ones we played with, though:

(I've edited this to black out the license plate.)

Someday, I'll get to see them!

  1. One day we saw the Northern Lights literally from our front stoop. That was cool!
