Aurora (Conon) 21/01/05 - Eric Walker
This has got to be my most succesful Northern Lights picture yet. This corona was right at the zenith and so bright you could see the bright pale green and rosy red streaks of light emanating from all around it. The streaks were fanning out racing toward the north-west. The bright "bloom" in the lower left corner is light from the nearly full Moon! This was an extremely intense, short-lived storm - it only lasted about 30-40 minutes but I am oh so glad I saw it and had my camera ready.
Image was taken using a Nikon Coolpix 5700, 15sec, f/2.8, fl=9mm, ISO 200 then processed with Adobe Photoshop CS.
