Object: Aurora Borealis

Date: November 5, 2001 (1:30 PM EST)

Exposure(s): 30 Seconds

Film: Kodak Supra 400

Equipement: Minolta Maxxum 9 w/ Tokina ATX280 lens @ 28mm and f/2.8

Hardware & Software: HP S20xi film scanner, Processed (lightly) and cropped Picture Window Pro 3.1c.

Info: It is VERY rare to see the Aurora Borealis from my home in south eastern Michigan, let alone to see it OVER my house. This image was captured around 10:30 pm and is aimed at zeinith. A large X-class CME on the previous day caused this auroral display to be visible over most of North America. The moon and the usual light pollution tried to wash out the effect but couldn't!
