Aurora Borealis over Lake Pepin


I keep watch on auroral activity here. 

The website also has an oval map that is updated every five minutes or so. 
Knowing that the predicted KP level was high, I headed to the lake at 10:30. 
My first photo, below, show a thin faint aurora on the horizon and an awesome meteor on the left. 

Getting thicker and brighter. Airplane on the top left.

Another meteor center left.


By now, it's midnight, and Margaret wanted to go home. She conceded, and we agreed to stay for twenty more minutes,

~~~~they danced~~~~




and I cried a little bit

at the overwhelming beauty of it

and I FINALLY 

got to see them

and photograph them

it was magically

                                                                              perfect
