I know we just had another KP-8 Aurora seen over the USA and Ohio recently, unfortunately it was cloudy all night for us here in Dayton, Ohio.
So I’m sharing this image that I captured last Month in Alaska.
Here is an amazing Coronal Aurora display that I captured with a Fish-eye lens and cropped slightly to create a vertical view.
It reminds me of a carnivores plant like a giant Venus Fly Trap,
Looks like a big mouth that is ready to eat anything on the Earth.
It was centered on the bowl of the Big Dipper,
I love how the magnetic field lines can create incredible art and watching this Coronal Aurora was spectacular!
Canon 6D DSLR, 8mm Fish-eye Lens, F3.5, ISO 3200, 10 second exposure.
On 03-25-2023, The Chena River State Recreational Area in Alaska.
Yes, I’m back in the lower 48, and I’m looking forward to imaging deep space once again.
Best Regards,
