The evening started off very good in Northeast Minnesota, with minimal cloud cover and high Aurora activity. Almost as soon as it was dark we were seeing vertical columns of light extending high into the sky, with the ever-present green color, but also lots of red color! After only about a half hour, however, the dark clouds moved in and soon the entire sky was blocked off by clouds, obscuring our view of the lights. It was a brief, yet spectacular window of activity!
