Over Lake Oahe November 7, 2015
I've seen many spectacular displays of the Aurora Borealis in South Dakota over
the years, but strangely none since I decided I wanted to photograph it.
Finally, it happened. Spaceweather.com
was forecasting high probabilities of a geomagnetic storm and the skies were
clear, so I went up to Lake Oahe to find a good place to watch. When I got
there, the aurora was glowing in the north but not much of a display was on. I
waited until 1:00 AM and finally this happened.
Not the best display I've seen but I was pretty happy with how the photos
turned out. I can imagine how it would look with a really great Aurora Borealis
