The forecast was for partially clear sky’s and the solar data look promising…so off I went. North of Onoway, Alberta I found this entrance to a field and set up my gear. I knew the aurora was not going to be that bright as it was still early in the evening. I did want to capture the clouds flying by though. There was a pretty strong wind blowing out of the west. Here’s what happened.
A few hundred kilometers later, activity began to pick up, but more clouds were around too. This old shed appeared and looked like a good foreground subject so I stopped and setup.
Here is another perspective from camera #2.
My night ended shortly after this. The clouds obsqured my view so I turn homeward bound.
