Summary: Northern spring is here--and that means it's aurora season. For reasons researchers don't fully understand, the weeks around equinoxes are the best time of the year to look for Northern Lights. See also Feb. 2010.

Today we observed some of the most interesting auroral displays (from space) this year over Europe. A rather billiant display appears to be giving a treat to everyone in northern Norway through Novaya Zemlya. This imagery comes from the US Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP), from the DMSP F18 satellite, using the Operational Linescan System (OLS). The color image is a multispectral combination of 'nighttime' visible imagery and infrared data.

I traveled to northern Yukon to photograph Aurora but it was cloudy/snowy most of my time there for 8 days. This Aurora came out all of a sudden very late at night around 04:30 in the morning. Since the moon was nearly full, foreground looks like a daytime. Canon EOS 5D MarkII, EF15/2.8 fisheye lens.

Tonight, after a long period, I finally went to the northern lights. It was beautiful. I went with a group of 23 people of Sophie-Barras School, from Montreal. Many had the chance to see their first northern lights... Details : Canon EOS 30D, 15 sec. exp., 800 ISO, f 3.5, 10mm.

First time this season I saw enough Aurora to get me to go out into the cold to photogrape any activity. Aurora wasn't remarkable other than it's the first decent one in awhile. It wasn't overhead, it was on the northeastern horizon, looking towards the magnetic pole.
