We noticed a diffuse glow in the northern sky here in southwestern MN
during the late evening hours of 21 Jan. 2004. Since nothing more than
that occurred for several hours, we went to bed and periodically woke
up to check the progress throughout the night. Finally at 5 AM on 22
Jan. 2004, colored rays started to appear and the pulsating phenomena
began. It was time to put on several layers of clothing (necessary to
withstand the -30 F wind chill) and head outside to take pictures. The
cold weather did not dampen our enthusiasm and we were well rewarded
with the magic of another aurora. Kodak GC 35 mm film, 400 ISO, f/d
1.4, 57 mm lens, 5 s exposure time.
