The northern lights glow over Mud Creek in Cook County, Minnesota.
Late last night, my phone’s alarm started buzzing to alert me to look at the night sky, and I’m glad I got out of bed to do so. The northern nights exploded over northern Minnesota.
I have a few regular places that I like to shoot the northern lights and this is one of them. It was pretty foggy last night, so I wasn’t exactly sure what I’d get on the camera, but the lights were bright enough to cut through the fog. This display with the pink rays started about 2:30ish. They were visible to the eye, although they looked more grayish to my eye. The green band was visible throughout the night. One of the nice things is that there were no bugs out! I couldn’t believe it.
I stayed out until dawn and the northern lights were still going! What a great way to start off the day.
