Back on the 23rd of August, I was out scouting locations for shooting with the full moon that was about to happen the next day. I wanted to see where it was going to rise from the east and have a good idea of what I was going to be shooting the next few days. At one point in time during the night, I randomly checked all the three websites for northern lights that I have booked marked on my phone. To my surprise, the “U of A Aurora Watch Website” and the “NOAA Space Weather Prediction Website” were both showing that the chance to see northern lights was very high! So I drove out to a previous location, which some of you may recognize. As soon as I got out of my car and set up with the full moon slightly behind me, the lights started to show. This light show lasted for about half an hour and near the end I also shot a few photos to put together in panoramic format. Below are 4 photos from that night. I’m still learning about night photography and shooting with the northern lights, so any tips out there would be great! Click on all photos to view bigger.
