The Northern Lights In North Carolina

A coronal mass ejection is heading for Earth (www.spaceweather.com) and is expected to cause an increase in polar aurora activity and possibly even trigger activity at middle latitudes. The last time I was lucky enough to see the aurora at my latitude (35-degrees north) was over 10 years ago. Here’s a shot I captured from a farm field in central North Carolina during that outburst.

A rare sighting of the northern lights in North Carolina. An old film shot. Don't remember the settings. (Have them recorded in a journal, but too lazy at the moment to dig it out and find the entry.)
