Northern Lights seen from La Pine, Oregon !

After a KP-8 event from the Sun earlier, this morning, the northern sky gently lit up with auroras! Though the human eye could not make out the colors (or maybe it is my old eyes that cannot!) the colors popped in the digital cameras I was using (Canon t2i, Canon t3, Canon t3i). All were taken at ISO 3200, 30 sec, f/4.5, daylight color balance, and with wide angle lens.

These images were enhanced to bring out the colors that were really there. Program used: GIMP

The whole display lasted over 1 1/2 hours!

Some of these made it on to our local TV station Z21 website (and I presume on air) !
