That big coronal mass ejection (a.k.a. “solar flare”) that has been in the news this week has finally hit earth, causing really big and pretty auroras (Aurora Borealis = Northern Lights) even far from the poles. My mom said that she could see them in Pennsylvania. The view from Vermont was a large red and green curtain across the northern sky and up to about 45° off the horizon.
I took my camera and tripod about a quarter-mile down 125 past Ridgeline and took pictures for about 45min. It was pretty stunning.
I made up a slide show of [14 of] my pictures (taken between 8:30pm and 9:30pm Thursday night).

Enjoy! I hope you got a chance to see them!
