Due to a big solar flare heading our way Friday September 12th, there is a great chance of getting a glimpse of the Northern Lights! Thought I'd repost about the time I went to photograph some meteors and instead got treated to the Aurora Borealis! And of course share tips on how to shoot them!
So I went over to Gorham's Bluff for a nice dark spot to shoot the Draconid Meteor Shower last December...and all my photos were ruined by this stupid red and green light in the sky...
Oh wait, that's the Northern Lights!
Something I have never seen before, and something that is a bit rare in my part of Canada (New Brunswick, on the East coast. Next to Maine for my American visitors who may have never heard of it)
So needless to say, I forgot all about the meteors and started shooting the sky!
