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:
Someday, I'll get to see them!
