Aurora Borealis - Northern Lights

Dawson City, Yukon - Feb. 15, 2008

On my last night in Dawson, I was really hoping for a good display of the northern lights, the clouds had cleared out and there was a solar wind present so conditions were pretty good. At just before midnight, a few of us drove out of the city and the light show began. There were bands of green in the sky and every so often, shimmering pillars of light would dance overhead. I even got to see tinges of red in some of the aurora. We stayed out until clouds came in and covered up the view. What a great way to cap off my visit to this amazing city, it was totally worth staying out in the twenty below zero temperatures.
