Beautiful Dawn.

Dawn approaches on the 31st of January 2007. The Pacific Ocean gently laps against the beach while Comet McNaught hangs gracefully in the sky above Cape Kidnappers, Hawke's Bay. This truly remarkable comet has been a gift to astronomers and lay-people alike, the world over. Photo details: Canon 350D, 25 second exposure with a Sigma 18-125mm lens, ISO 800 @ f-3.5.

Omega Over Fort Greely

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Fri Mar 14 19:14:01 2003 UTC

Here we have a classic "Omega" feature - named for the shape that resembles the Greek letter. The lights on the distant horizon are from the Fort Greely Military Reservation near Delta Junction, Alaska where our troops receive training for extreme cold weather. I even heard distant explosions on this Late-January 2003 night during some nocturnal exercises. This is also the site for the proposed Strategic Missile Defense System which is currently under construction. ' Hard to think of such things while such a peaceful auroral display is in progress.

Purple Rays

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Thu Sep 11 18:38:01 2003 UTC

Tall purple rays reach up from the tangle of boat masts and rigging and into the bowl of the "Big Dipper" in this August 22, 2003 image from Homer, Alaska Taken about 2:00a.m. local time. I had spent the last couple hours waiting for a little activity and as these rays appeared I was able to get only two shots before they disappeared again and the aurora faded. The purple itself is produced in a process called resonance scattering whereby already ionized nitrogen molecules absorb and then immediately re-emit photons in this part of the spectrum. These photons are captured from direct sunlight as it reaches the upper parts of an aurora during twilight. We do not always see the purple directly as our dark-adapted eyes are not very sensitive in this part of the spectrum. More often film, without our human limitations, will capture the faint coloring. It is only during times of extreme brightness that we may witness this color visually ourselves. This photo was taken with a 50mm lens and medium format Fuji 400F.

Aurora Dec 20

Submitted by: Kim Randolph at Wed Dec 24 20:54:01 2003 UTC

Driving home in the early evening I watched a faint glowing arch in the northern sky and guessed that it was an aurora. My eyes could not see any color. My husband thought I was nuts - he couldn't see a thing. Once home I set up my camera on the patio to see what it could pick up. Yup! It was aurora so I set off again in the car to check it out.

I have a new digital camera and grabbed it to take this picture of a sun pillar as the sun rose. It reminded me of a sword. The camera was on automatic, and I blocked the sun (somewhat) with a tree and the school building in the distance. December 7, 2003 with a Nikon Coolpix 4500. Copyright 2003 Beth Katz.

14/15th Oct. aurora

Submitted by: Tom Eklund at Wed Oct 15 10:29:01 2003 UTC

Quite wonderful...really good aurora last night. Especially the first substorm around 18.30 UTC was one of the bests of the whole solarcycle. Full of speed and fury. It had so much moving parts that it is a wonder that it didn't die down sooner than what it actually did. ;-) This pic was taken at 22.08 UTC when had several pulsating bands going through a zenith...
