Great Aurora Watching Weekend Ahead

According to the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the effects of the solar events of the last days have reached Earth and a large magnetic storm is in progress, creating the potential for a massive aurora visible all over Alaska and into the 48 lower states. The aurora should also be visible all over Scandinavia and Central Europe. This means that the first major aurora watching weekend is upon us, and with clearing skies over Juneau and other parts of the state we might be in for a real treat. I photographed this aurora recently above Healy with my 10.5 mm fisheye lens. Exposure: 30 seconds @ F2.8, ISO 100, Exposure compensation +5.
