Breakup at Nikolaevsk

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Wed Apr 4 23:40:01 2007 UTC

This image was taken on the early morning of March 13, 2007 from near the Russian village of Nikolaevsk on Alaska's Southern Kenai Peninsula. This night was marked by several minor substorms. Repeatedly an arc would form in the north and suddenly brighten and form tall rays which then rapidly move westward and fade only to start the process again and again. I used a 6x7 medium-format camera with a 38mm wide-angle lens and Kodak E200 film to record the scene. Copyright (c) Dennis C. Anderson Night Trax Photography Contact at: or visit:

Midnight Lights

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Sun Jan 5 01:27:01 2003 UTC

Tall rays contrast the mottled appearance of this post-breakup aurora just after midnight on October 10, 2002. Poplar, birch, and spruce trees stand in silhouette against the "Northern Lights" in this view of the rapidly-retreating aurora from Homer, Alaska. This image was acquired with a 30mm fisheye lens on medium format Fuji Provia 400f film.

A new solar filter and a bit of fiddling with the image and the sunspots are well delineated. Canon 300D on 6 inch refractor.

Winter Orion

Submitted by: Ragnar Johnskaas at Sun Apr 20 15:34:01 2003 UTC

This photo was shot on the 27th of February 2003. I was out trying to catch the northern lights on film. I got some photos, but it was the sight of the jewels on the night sky that was most breathtaking.

Aurora of Sept 18 2003 @ 05:30UTC

Submitted by: Peter Sproule at Fri Sep 26 03:13:01 2003 UTC

This was taken around 05:30 UTC near Cannington ON, and although the last quarter moon lit the sky, the aurora was easily visible to the naked eye. I'm surprised at the detail and colour that was captured. Canon F-1, 50 mm lens @ f/2, 15-20 second exposure on Fuji Superia 400 print film.

C/2002 T7 (LINEAR).

Submitted by: Graham Palmer at Sun Nov 28 05:15:01 2004 UTC

It turned out that my only decent chance to photograph T7 was on May 1st, wile it was still in the dawn sky... The comet rose about 1 1/2 hours before sunrise, and was almost exactly on the ecliptic. Unfortunately for me, that morning produced the brightest zodiacal light that I have ever seen. This washed out a lot of the faint features, but I still managed to capture several degrees of tail, and a faint anti-tail in this frame. Photo details: Minolta camera, 9 minute exposure with a 50mm lens @ f-1.7, Kodak Elitechrome 200 slide film. Image copyright to Graham Palmer. Contact me at

31st Aug / 1st Sep Aurora 5.

Submitted by: Tom Eklund at Sat Sep 3 22:15:01 2005 UTC

Coronal hole stream with Bz values near -20 for hours created this short but impressive and large auroral substorm. This was also my first decent to good aurora since April 2004, which did not get clouded out in the middle of the observation...usually just before the substorms. I can't say i would be utterly disappointed. ;-D
