I saw this aurora during watching the moon and saturn in Luebeck Observatory. A friend called me because he saw the aurora. I took my digital camera and shot some photos without tripot. For three minutes I had seen the aurora.

Some more pictures can you see on my homepage: http://www.aurora.a-s-t-r-o-n-o-m-i-e.de/pic/021120/index.html

Aurora Over Wrangell-St.Elias

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Fri Mar 30 09:02:01 2007 UTC

Although the aurora did not fill the sky tonight with a powerful show, it did many wonderful things. This was one of them. After one of the modest break-ups, or substorms, remnants of the display float above the mountains as another arc low in the north, displays colorful nitrogen fringing while gathering strength for its own little display. This March 28, 2007 view, from Willow Lake located south of Glenellen, Alaska, includes 12, 010' Mount Drum (left) and 16,237' Mount Sanford (right) These now-extinct volcanos are located in the northwest part of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Interestingly, a commercial DC-4 crashed into the side of Sanford on March 12, 1948 killing all 30 aboard. It is speculated that the pilots were distracted by a brilliant auroral display seen on that night. I used a home-built 6x9 medium-format camera with a 98mm lens and a 10-second exposure on Fuji Provia 100F film for this photo. Copyright (c) Dennis C.
