Bright Band with Nitrogen Fringe

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Tue Apr 8 17:55:01 2008 UTC

On the night of March 27-28 a diffuse band rapidly grows brighter and begins to display color on its bottom edge. This is an indication that higher energy particles are penetrating the atmosphere to lower levels where nitrogen molocules are coaxed into producing reddish and purplish emissions. The common green aurora is created by the excitation of oxygen atoms at altitudes ranging from about 100 to 150 km. (60 to 90 miles). This colorful "nitrogen fringing" takes place as low as about 70km. (43 miles). This is as close to the ground as the aurora ever gets. I used a 6x7 cm. medium format camera with a 75mm lens to record the northwestern sky from the Chena River east of Fairbanks. Copyright (c) Dennis C.

April Thunderstorm II

Submitted by: Remi Boucher at Mon Apr 26 06:42:03 2004 UTC

Another picture of the same thunderstorm on 2004 april 18th. A lot of lights in the picture : 2 lightnings, 2 moving cars, houses and overexposed grass. One of the great things with taking picture of lightnings at night is to see the beautiful pattern of those thunder clouds with shades of violet.

Details : Nikon Coolpix 4500, f/3.3, 27.1sec., at 200ISO.

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Thu Apr 23 20:05:01 2009 UTC

A sulphur-rich gas plume is seen drifting southward from Redoubt Volcano during its current phase of activity as seen from near Homer, Alaska. Its "sister" volcano Illiamna is at the recieving end of the plume and is back-lit by the recently set sun. The plume, rich in sulphur dioxide, was detected by satellite extending to another 600 miles downstream. Copyright (c) Dennis C. Anderson Night Trax Photography Contact at: or visit:

Quasi Stereo Aurora

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Thu Oct 31 10:41:01 2002 UTC

This is a pair of aurora images taken from Livingston Montana April 1, 1976. They are arranged to be viewed as a "3D" stereo image. To achieve the effect center between the images at a foot or so fromyour screen. Slowly cross your eyes to bring the two images togeather (you will see three images but ignore the outer two). Relax your eyes and allow them to focus. It might take a little practice but you will know it when it is working. Don't forget to uncross your eyes before attempting to operate motor vehicles.

Taken with Nikon D100 on 19/1/07 from Manning Point, northern NSW, Australi a ­ no street lights out here in this sleepy coastal holiday spot so there wa s no light pollution in the night sky. The bright shot is a 23 second time-lapse shot at ISO 1250 with a 70mm lens that clearly shows the comet¹s spectacular fan-like dust tail, visible to the naked eye as a faint glow. Cheers!

Aurora over misty lake

Submitted by: Tom Eklund at Sat Oct 11 22:21:01 2003 UTC

One of those rare evenings when there is a small aurora and a mist over the lake. At best the mist can make up truly unreal looking scenes with good aurora. While there is not a good aurora, the mist at least blocks the terrible red link tower lights in the horizon.

Nitrogen Blues

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Tue Nov 8 20:19:01 2005 UTC

On the early morning of October 29, 2003 I witnessed the strongest showing of deep blue aurora that I can remember. Colors at this end of the spectrum are very difficult for our eyes to perceive and more often blues and purples might show up on film that were undetected or barely perceptible visually. This morning was a spectacular exception as the blue and purple emissions were strong enough to become especially vivid to the eye. Here the beautiful tall rays, reaching to overhead, are seen above our home, located in Homer, Alaska, at about 6:30 a.m. local time.

I used a 6x9 medium format camera and 50mm lens to capture the spectacle. copyright (c) 2003 Dennis C. Anderson Contact at or visit
