Auroras in Maryland Kaidi Image taken: Oct. 24, 2011 Location: Potomac, Maryland Details: I saw spaceweather.com said aurora is underway and very strong. So I took my Canon 10D and went out to the deck. I can see some reddish color in the northwestern sky and aimed my camera at that direction. Each photo is exposed for 10 to 15 seconds. ©2013, SpaceWeather.com -- This site is penned daily by Dr. Tony Phillips.
