Norhtern Lights, aurora borealis - The grand sweep of the aurora borelis across the northern and northeastern sky, from Tibbitt Lake near Yellowknife, NWT, on September 8, 2018. <br />

The Big Dipper and Polaris are at left; Auriga and Taurus are rising at right, with Capella, Aldebaran and the Pleiades coming up in the east. Cassiopeia and Perseus are at top in the Milky Way. Thereís a meteor streaking down at top as well! <br />
<br />
This is a mean-combined stack of 8 exposures for the ground to smooth noise, and one exposure for the sky, all 15 seconds at f/2.8 with the 12mm Rokinon full-frame fish-eye lens, and Nikon D750 at ISO 6400. This was part of a time-lapse, taken before the arc swept overhead while it was still across the north and east.
