Fire During An Icy Night

Submitted by: Charles Reinert at Fri Jan 23 03:27:01 2004 UTC

This image was taken in the early morning on 22 Jan. 2004 on a farm in southwestern MN. The wind chill was -30 degrees F, and after standing outside for 45 minutes, some of that imaginary "fire" would have been most welcome to warm our freezing fingers. Kodak GC 35 mm film, f/d 1.4, 57 mm lens, 5 s exposure.

This image was taken close to dawn on 22 Jan 2004. After standing outside for nearly an hour in -30 degree F wind chill temperatures, we decided this part of the aurora with its cool green colors was "Visible Wind Chill". Kodak GC 35 mm film, f/d = 1.4, 57 mm lens, 5 s exposure.


Wake-up Call

Submitted by: Charles Reinert at Fri Jan 23 03:27:01 2004 UTC

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.
