Two Nights Chasing Auroras


After weeks of clouds and snow and extreme minus temps…..Lady Aurora returned full of herself…….in some places even with extreme colors of red and tinges of yellow ….but for me it was watching the data page and running out my front door to middle of drive way ….the first night was special…I had watched and been out the door many times …was getting so frustrated …but hubby said trying to be cheeky ….”When I go out to feed chicken hon I will whistle them up for you”……he was gone a long time and I had just came in from checking….he pops in the door and says hurry hon they are dancing …..he whistled them up ….the sky was full of pinks and green….

Collection of last night (02-02-20150)…had waited and watch and grew tired so took shower and washed hair…put pjs and went back and checks data …yep you guessed it ..three good data marks… wrapped up wet hair two scarfs and hubby’s hat with ear flaps and heavy down coat and boot,mitts …. tripod, remote, camera …..all of 8 minutes to get ready …out the door slipping legs of tripod into place and turning on camera and remote and then standing in ewe as she danced above me ……oh what a night and all before midnight….temps was minus 18 and the flag was moving so there was just enough breeze to cause movement ….making temps even colder…..
