I must say it was more than a little frustrating to miss the strong G3 geomagnetic storm two nights ago with smoke and clouds. The little coronal mass ejection (CME) which it seemed everyone thought would be a non-event certainly put on a show for those with clear skys. The next day we had thunderstorms and a cold northerly wind which has put a blast of autumn in the air and cleared the sky beautifully. The CME hung around long enough for me to get some follow up shots as the tail end of the stream passed though last night. This shot was taken when it was at Kp 4.3 , which is considered below minor storm levels, but was just enough for the aurora to outshine the full moon. The shot was taken over Ness Lake. Northern British Columbia, Canada.
