Aurora Borealis? Or Illusion? Part 2

Submitted by: Montresor at Wed Jan 19 09:49:01 2005 UTC

Photo taken 18 January 2005, Northbrook, IL, USA. 08:00 UTC (2:00 AM CST) Is this a real aurora, or an optical illusion? This is an open subject of discussion. What do you think? Camera faces SW. (Photo 2 of 2). This much is a fact: you are looking at a slightly cropped, unedited (except for proper orientation) photo. The phenomenon was actually observed in the sky; it is not something that occurred inside the camera. The color of the "aurora" was pinker than is shown here. 1 second exposure, 400 ASA Fuji Superia Film, Canon T-70 35mm camera. Copyright 2005 Mark Donaghey.
