Aurora Borealis Did What Butler Could Not

12 04 2010

Many of you may have read how America “deserved” to have Butler win the national championship game.  America needed it!  Well, Juneau needed an aurora borealis showing before the night was shortened to a few hours.  And guess what – the Northern Lights came through!  Unlike Butler.

It was quite a combination of factors that led to a late night viewing of the Northern Lights.  First, Michele went to a dinner party on Saturday night (I was working) and for some reason decided to bring the camera along.  While there, our photog pal Dave set our camera to a setting that would capture the aurora.  Fast forward to Sunday – again, I had to work until about 9pm and Michele took in some of the acts of Folk Fest.  On our walk home, Michele got a text message from our friend Mike, informing us that the Northern Lights were out.

Now, seeing as we had a camera that was set for the photos at night and a clear sky with no moon, we decided to drive out to North Douglas and see what we could find.  Believe me, they did not disappoint.  Nor did our camera.

The photos we got are below.  Michele was the point-lady on these, and a special thanks to Dave and Mike for their contributions.  Enjoy…
