By far, my favorite aurora display

Submitted by: Lyndon Anderson at Mon Dec 30 00:49:01 2002 UTC

The aurora breakup that occurred sometime around 9:55 p.m. on Thursday, December 26, 2002, was by far the most stunning display of the northern lights that I have seen in my three years of viewing. The photographs taken during that time - don't reflect the beauty of this display. Anyway, during most of this time, I could see purple at the lower edges of the display, which was picked up by the film. Looking north-northeast. Lyndon Anderson, Bismarck, North Dakota, USA.

River Omega

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Sat Oct 12 00:37:02 2002 UTC

Nature mimics nature as the aurora seems to wrap itself around a stand of tall cottonwoods in a classic "omega" formation. Tall rays glow purple as the 3:00 a.m. twilight catches the uppermost aurora.This nocturnal scene was photographed from along the Anchor River on Alaska's Southern Kenai Peninsula on April 26, 2000 with a 30mm fisheye lens on a 6x6 cm. medium format camera and Fuji NHG800 film .

Lunar Halo

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Sun May 8 10:08:01 2005 UTC

On this crisp January night in early 2005 there was a distinct halo around the moon which was caused by high altitude ice crystals. I used a 30mm fisheye lens on a 6x6 cm medium format camera to catch the spectacle.

Still one more shot from August 19/20 display. When glorious start was over, the display got more modest appearance, but still offered some pretty serene sights later in the night.

The Way Home

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Fri Feb 11 11:01:01 2005 UTC

After six hours of driving through blizzard conditions, complete with flying hamsters, snow snakes, and Star Wars effects, it was a delight to see the lights of Homer (overexposed) reflected off the low clouds ahead. It was even more of a delight to see a few stars and of course - the aurora borealis. I was only five miles from home after five days away but it would wait another couple hours as I watched the sky flickering wildly for one and then labored for another to free my loaded van from the deep snow that had accumulated in my absence. - November 8, 2004 Copyright (c) Dennis C.

Giant On The Water.

Submitted by: Graham Palmer at Fri Mar 7 03:25:01 2008 UTC

Orion, the hunter, reflects nicely in the surface of Lake Tutira. This area was a traditional hunting site for local Maori, who depended on food provided by the vast bird-life that once resounded in the dawn chorus. Clearing of the forests for farmland almost silenced the birds, but now the trees are making a comeback, and so are the birds. Bring on the chorus! Photo details: Canon 350D, ISO 400, 12 1/2 minute exposure with a Canon EF 15mm Fisheye lens @ f-2.8. Image copyright to Graham Palmer. For more images, visit my website:

When the northern light show on the 14th had subsided and was driving home in my car, I was once again thrilled by Orion`s beauty, reflecting in a pond beside the road. I stopped the car immediately to shoot this photo. Next time I will wish for the aurora to sneak into the scene on a night when the moon is 3/4 full.

For a few days in May 2002, we were treated to some lovely solar haloes. Haloes are comparatively rare here. The local media were flooded with calls from people wondering what the ring around the sun was. Suggestions ranged from chemtrails to aliens. Really. Sheesh...
