Lovely. Well done. I'm in Calgary but I've only ever seen the aurora from my back yard once.

Isn't it a great feeling to watch the aurora dancing
I had seen them many time back in Ontario but
not like what I witness here in Northern Alberta WOW
hair raising ! I just couldn't get the right setting on my camera :rofl:
You have great captures!

Thank you very much! Glad you like it. And I had never seen anything like this before either!
Where exactly in Northern Alberta are you?

If you have any questions about settings, let me know and I'll see what I can do to help :)

Wow, I don't often get to see pictures of them looking straight up. Maybe its less common to see them right overhead than off in the distance - but hey, the distant ones have to be above somebody right :D

I like how intense it is, it almost looks like it's made of something more solid and tangible :shocked:

Haha, you are correct.
Farther north you can often see them directly above, but this is the first time I ever saw something crazy like this.

Nope, just a straight shot. About a 3 second exposure.
