Details:
A beautiful and vibrant display of Northern Lights appeared directly over head in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. A number of local RASC Astrophotographers from shot some time lapse videos, and reported they were directly visible from downtown Edmonton and even in Calgary. I captured these from my light polluted backyard to show how bright they indeed were, even with the full moon out. The display started around 11:30 PM and was going strong until past 3:00 AM.
