Nov. 21st 2003 aurora

Submitted by: Pierre St. Hilaire at Wed Nov 26 07:33:01 2003 UTC

At 5:30 PM UTC a well defined auroral arc appeared on the NE 20 degrees above the horizon. At its best the arc covered the horizon from N to E and shot a few rays 45 deg. up in the sky. Bright areas undulated along the arc. Visually the aurora was green. The reds were just below the perception limit. It actually looked like a fairly decent South Canada aurora. Activity lasted on and off over the next 2 hours.

Yashica FX-3 camera with 50mm f/2 objective. 30 sec exposure on Provia 400F pushed 1 stop.

Aurora Panorama

Submitted by: louis greene at Fri Jan 9 20:05:02 2004 UTC

This image was taken ealier this week overlooking the Chugach Mountains with a portion of the Lights from Anchorage entering the photo on the lower left. This is a composite panorama that was made by merging 2 separate photos (taken seconds apart and ro tating the camera to a different view) together in Photoshop. The angle of view is probably around 160 degrees. Due to the static nature of the auroral arc, and a little “perspective correction” with Photoshop, it comes together to “represent” the scene that played out in front of me. Though she is blurred due to movement during the long exposure, check out the Moose in the lower right of the frame just above and left of my name!

CZA and Film Comparison

Submitted by: A Rahm at Mon Nov 4 22:08:01 2002 UTC

This is a comparison between two circumzenithal arcs and two kinds of film. The first is from 18 September 2002 using Nikon F with 50 mm lens and Fuji Superia 200 negative film. The second is from 25 September using Nikon FE with 36-72 mm lens and Kodak 200 negative film. On both days the CZA appeared around 4:00 to 4:15 PM EDT. I noticed interesting colour differences between the films, and a slight difference in width of the arcs. ©2002 Amber Rahm

This the corona formed from the same fog that formed the car headlight fogbows. Notice the colorful concetric rings and the perfect symmetry of the corona. This corona looks so perfect it almost looks simulated.

A Rainbow Of Southern Fire

Submitted by: John Burt at Thu May 8 11:37:01 2003 UTC

This Auroral Arc appeared in the sky as darkness fell. This photo is a composite of 5 photos and spans approximately 120 degrees, centered due south. The island on the ocean is Stewart Island, whose Maori name is Rakiura which I am told translates to "Burning Skies" in english.

Kp 9 subvisual aurora from nov. 20

Submitted by: Tom Eklund at Mon Nov 24 20:33:01 2003 UTC

Same thing again. Persistent -50 Bz almost forced to get on the road again. On 20th of Nov 2003 there seemed to be a remote chance for starry skies in the west coast and we headed there. After some 100-150 km driving the mist and cloud cover got little thinner and revealed an large aurora in progress. Almost every time the mist overtook our observation places in just minutes, but at least i can say that i saw part of it...Although when ever it was possible to see the aurora through the mist and clouds, it was not a very good aurora. By far the most diffuse one i have ever seen and when i saw it, it was also really really faint. It there some red or am i imagining the whole thing type of aurora. Yet, it was not much overhead, but far far in the south.

Auroral Glow and Lightning-lit Clouds

Submitted by: A Rahm at Fri Oct 11 17:13:02 2002 UTC

On the night of September 3-4, 2002, there was some fairly bright auroral glow (white and green at first) in the north and northeast in Rochester, VT. There were many clouds moving in and a storm brewing mostly towards the southeast. There were flickerings of lightning in clouds in the northeast as well. So I kept the camera set up and waited to get some lightning. I saw a few streaks and a meteor, but wound up with a glowing cloud. I was pleased to see that the aurora showed on the film; it was not as visible to the eye. I used my husband's Nikon F with 50 mm lens, and Kodak Gold 200. © Copyright 2002 Amber Rahm
