Sleep calls but not before I share a photo or two of tonight’s northern lights. The aurora was active early around 8 p.m. CDT but then faded back to a thick, quiet arc for nearly two hours. Suddenly at 10:30 p.m. life came back into the display when the bottom of the arc “lit up” in bright, pale green rays. They shot up one after the other across the lower half of the northern sky to create a series of beautiful light pillars.
Even at midnight I see the aurora remains active with a low arc and moving glows low in the north. Activity’s been strong, and I suspect anything can still happen over the long night.
Hope you got to see it.
