Spring Aurora

No image can convey the experience of witnessing the aurora borealis firsthand, but I hope this helps put into perspective just how intense the display was this past Saturday morning. This was taken with a wide-angle lens; the view is roughly equivalent to the human eye. Imagine looking directly overhead and seeing this across the entire sky, the lights converging into a corona directly over Polaris, the North Star, and shooting literally hundreds of miles into the atmosphere.
