November Northern Lights

It has been an exciting few days in terms of solar activity here on earth. An enhanced solar wind stream coupled with a south pointing Bz generated nice aurora displays throughout North America – especially in the Rocky Mountains of Southern Alberta.

Friday night was spent shooting for seven hours from the hours of 10pm to 5am throughout the Rocky Mountains starting from Kananaskis county, moving to Canmore, and finally Banff. The resulting footage has been compiled in a 2 minute long timelapse as well as a few stills. Hope you enjoy!!

This Timelapse covers 7 hours of shooting from Kannanaskis, to Canmore, and finally in Banff. In total, over 1500 shots were taken and 400km covered!

I Thought this was really neat. In one frame I managed to catch a large Fireball, and if you look through the following frames, you can see that it actually left behind a vapour trail also!
