Multiple but brief arcs - 9 December 2011

Submitted by: Beth Katz at Sat Dec 10 03:32:01 2011 UTC

Top to bottom: circumzenithal arc, 46 degree halo, upper tangent arc, faint 22 degree halo. There was also a brilliant sun dog on the right and part of the 46 degree halo on the left. The 46 degree halo definitely was not touching the circumzenithal arc above it, so that rules out the supralateral arc. These clouds were very fleeting, and I didn't have time to run into the house and grab my better camera. So these are from my iPhone 3GS. From Lancaster County, Pennsylvania around 3:20pm on 9 December 2011. Sun about 11.5 degree altitude. Copyright (c) 2011 Beth Katz,

Noctiluscent Clouds at Moose River

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Thu Jul 24 22:18:01 2003 UTC

A rare showing of noctiluscent cluds are seen here reflected in the Moose River of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula in the early morning of July 19, 2003. The bluish clouds are actually water ice cristals at about 50 miles altitude and are reflecting the sun's rays as it is a few degrees below the northern horizon seen here around local midnight about 2:30 a.m. This image was acquired with a 55mm lens on a medium format camera and Fuji MS100 film.

A Little Glory

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Fri Nov 6 23:32:01 2009 UTC

While on a flight from Mazatlan, Mexico to Los Angeles this past March 2009, I looked down to see a small glory on the clouds a few thousand feet below. A glory looks similar to a solar or lunar halo except that it is opposite the sun and is caused by reflection and refraction of sunlight from droplets in the clouds. It is similar to a rainbow that forms a full circle. The size of the droplets determines the size of a glory. Large droplets make for smaller glories. If the droplets are of uniform size, up to four concentric rings might be seen. The shadow of the 737 jetliner is visible at the center of this glory. Copyright (c) Dennis C.

April Auroras, Rays

Submitted by: louis greene at Sat Apr 12 10:40:01 2003 UTC

This shot as taken at around 2AM Thursday morning. The Aurora was out quite a while as a long arc just streaming across the sky rather faintly. As I was experimenting with my locations it gradually intesified until it exploded into intense activity for quite a while. It was quite a show. The other photo from an earlier date was taken at Hatchers pass. The lights in the bottom right are emanating from rental cabins. This arc was quite intense, but never really broke out into the wild activity of the previous one. Both shots are in Alaska, taken with a digital camera 200 ASA exposure approx 12 seconds.

Red Bird

Submitted by: Dennis Anderson at Wed Feb 9 21:30:01 2005 UTC

On the early morning of January 17, 2005 a rare bird came again to Homer. As he flapped his mammoth wings overhead the sky was all aglow with red. Way too many missed it alas, asleep in bed I fear. I used a 6x7 medium format camera with a 38mm ultra-wide lens and Kodak E100G film for this portrait of this spectacular crowning aurora. Copyright (c) Dennis C.

Here's a picture taken with infra-red film. I should have used a longer exposure. I've been told that it's the eq. of a 100ASA film The thing to try the next time is to use 2 cameras with same lens and apperture and shoot in the same direction to see if we would see a different part of the aurora in infra red comparred to reg. film Enjoy!
