With the K index so high we've been watching as it started getting dark. Here is the first glimpse of the aurora on a night when things look hopeful for much more! See the green band tucked down near the mountains? Note also the blue night sky caused by Rayleigh scattered moonlight. Nikon D300, Nikon 35mm lens, f2, ISO1000, 3 s.
