Northern Lights Oct 9, 2012

I wasn’t even going to go out tonight. I saw that there was some activity going on that could see some northern lights forming, but I had too much work to do from weddings… plus I was feeling very lazy. I was watching the activity steadily increase and photos coming in from other chasers Spencer Sills and Dave Patrick. At 5 to 11 the Kp forcast was set to go up to 7.6! So, I decided it was time to get out there and take some photos. My cousin had mentioned a wind farm in Shelburne, ON  that I wanted to check out – so I got out there as fast as I could (within the speed limit obviously ;)

I call this one, “The Porschern Lights” lol
