Aurora Borealis in Vermont

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!
