How bloody good. Was that last Wednesday? It was the biggest aurora we've had in ages.Blown away.
With no moon, I ventured for dark sky's to play with a new camera and test out some nightlapse photography (pity you cant post vids directly)
Anyhow, some considerable miles north of Kal, The clouds parted finally and I started to set up for a nightlapse shoot. First a few framing shots, then let the camera rip for 1.5 Hours.
Not seen until the morning when I downloaded the pics onto a PC, I noted, not only did I get the galactic core rising, but I also got the last remnants of the aurora australis before it faded out. I cant believe 1. I got a pic of the aurora and 2. It was captured so far north.
Pretty stoked with that effort.
Time was aprox 2245 hrs. Must have been a big coronal mass ejection to be seen this far up. Hopefully more to come as we enter the sun spot maxima.
