Aurora Borealis (August 29th and 30th)

Aurora Borealis seen from the road in our neighborhood.

The sun set around 9:20 PM now here in Fairbanks, so it is getting dark enough to see northern lights at night.  In addition, it has been windy for a couple of days and all the clouds and dust were blown away from the sky, so the sky was pretty clear.
We walked up on the road from our cabin around 11:30 PM and we enjoyed seeing northern lights!
It was first time for me to see them, so it was really exciting.
I didn't use tripod, so the pictures are not perfect, but they give you some idea what we saw.
