Astrocat Presents The First Auroras of the Season

It's starting to get dark in Fairbanks, saw stars for the first time this summer on August the 14th.

We had clear skies tonight and the aurora data looked somewhat promising - KP index of 4
and a solar wind speed of 663 kilometers per second - so I took a drive up to Ester Dome
about 11:30 and waited until about 1:30 and didn't see a thing, absolutely nothing.

Started driving home disappointed and then all of a sudden they finally came out, bright,
overhead and moving fast, so I just pulled over on the side of the road and took these shots.
Lasted about 30 minutes, wish I would have brought my new fisheye lens with.

Astrocat, thanks - you do good work.

Yes, keep that fish-eye lens in your car  :)
