Winnipeg Aurora Photos 2015

This summer was a tricky one for viewing the Aurora from our location.  There were quite a occasions when the atmosphere put on a show, but unfortunately for the majority of those times, the Winnipeg area was under cloud cover.

 *sad face*

We did manage to catch a show at the beginning of September though.  Sorry for the intrusive watermark.  I can’t remember why I used that one.  I regret it now, but I’m too lazy to change it.

Be sure to scroll all the way to the end to see another September gem!

This was an interesting display.  It wasn’t the most colourful, nor did it cover a huge expanse of the sky (relatively speaking), but it had some fascinating features to it just the same.

This particular shot shows a beautiful swirl that really conveys the motion of the band.  It was like a celestial conveyor belt, swirling in on itself in a continuous loop.  Also note the bright blue proton arc in the upper left region.

September held other astronomical wonders for us as well!

Check it out after the jump!

On the 27th, we were lucky enough to have clear skies for a lunar eclipse!
