In the early morning hours of May 18, 2013 the Earth was struck a glancing blow from a CME originating from an X Class solar flare on the sun. Luckily, I was in a prime location to catch the great show. The video below captures the resulting Northern Lights as they dance above Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada.
The video contains over 1800 photos shot over a period of 4 hours from midnight to 4am on May 18, 2013.
Jasper Provincial Park is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited, I hope you enjoy the video and photos!
