caught brief aurora (Sundridge)

Katrina spotted it. A brightening in the north. I returned to the cabin. Found my lens was still fogged. I held the camera close to the wood stove to burn off the moisture. Back outside, as I looked, I noticed it changing, shimmering, spikes heading up. Starting shooting. Woo hoo! Got 'em!

Canon 40D, 18-55 lens at 25, f/4.0, 30 seconds, ISO 1600, daylight white balance, tripod mounted, not tracked.

By the time Katrina and Steve had retrieved and set up their cameras, it was gone.
