Subtle Aurora

"THIS IS NOT A DRILL!?!?"  Our first aurora sighting may not have been dramatic, but it was fun anyway.  The three of us RAN out of the house to the darkest part of town.  Luckily we saw dancing green aurora on the horizon throughout our whole run.  Unluckily, the show was basically over when we arrived.  I was glad to have seen them, and in such great company too.  Spoiler alert: Spectacular and unbelievable aurora appeared another night...

Subtle aurora are still beautiful.

Occasionally we would baaaaarely see the aurora dancing in the still not quite dark enough sky.

Since the aurora were barely discernible, I focused my attention to the crazy clouds illuminated by the moon.
