Aurora Event 2003.10.29

Steve, Andy and I took these pictures using a Nikon Nikkormat camera from my back yard on the night of 2003.10.29. Once the clouds rolled in we could see a faint glow in the clouds and at that point we decided to pack it in. It will not be a experience we will soon forget.

Camera setting were:
