Just out side of Ester, Alaska
I started the evening watching the SALMON cam, and saw there was some red beginning to show in the north. It only took me 10 minutes to get to my shooting location, and the aurora seemed very faint. But by shooting at ISO 1000, 10-15 seconds, and f2.8, I could see the colors were really there. The aurora was slow and gentle, and was quite stable. Of course I was hoping for some meteors to stream in, but it was quite for them as well. These were taken in the two hours before local midnight.
