Sioux Falls, SD
I snapped a quick photo of a magnificent NLC display visible from Sioux Falls, SD looking just west of north. First NLC experience! I've been keeping my eye out for a while. Unfortunately I'm not yet equipped for this type of photography (hoping to remedy that) and I took this with a Canon Powershot on manual mode and no tripod. I stayed as still as I could while getting eaten alive by mosquitos. It was about a 5 second exposure.
