Just waiting for our next 2023 Aurora Hunting Crew to Arrive on Tuesday.
and John S. and I set out to Checkout & prep our sites for their arrival.
temps were not bad, only hovering around -1F last night. Was a balmy 28F during the day.

The area received a lot of deep snow again this year…but at least its manageable…
and this means we should be able to see and photograph some Moose again this year as well as Aurora.
We saw a large moose on our way out to one of our sites last night.
The Aurora kicked up nicely around 10:00pm last night and we enjoyed a decent display(kp3)

Now that those high level cirrus clouds passed through it started to clear off enough to see the Aurora Borealis well.
In this self-portrait image I captured the Pastel Aurora covering the constellation of Auriga & Cassiopeia, Hyades, Pleiades, Mars, and even the faint glow of the great Andromeda galaxy.
