A Faint Aurora Over Olympia

An aurora, or Northern Lights, are not unheard of as far south as Olympia, but they are rare.  Things have to line up just right for them to present themselves.  Monday night was one of those rare nights when it happened.  Long time readers might remember this display from back in 2012.

While the display did get brighter after I had to call it a night, I was able to capture this very faint display, it wasn’t visible to the naked eye, but was just bright enough for my camera to see.

I wish I could have stayed out shooting longer that night, but the alarm clock always goes off for the day job and I had to stop shooting at about midnight.
