Chasing the Aurora

At the end of September 2020, we in Alberta were presented with a unique opportunity to chase the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis. We had a couple of days that were KP5 or KP6 which were G2 storms. However after spending three days and nights chasing they didn’t really show up.

We learned some things along the way and found some good dark sites for some great night photography in the future.

Below is the best photo from those three nights over the weekend at the end of September. This was my first photo of the northern lights and I am pleased with the first shot. My Milkyway photography took time to evolve and took time to learn the skills of taking those photographs.

I look forward to learning more about taking Aurora photos and more time chasing in the coming months.
