Norhtern Lights, aurora borealis - A 150∞ panorama of the Northern Lights forming a classic arc across the north, with curtains stretching up along magnetic field lines, from lower greens and yellows up to reds and magentas. Here the aurora is more quiescent with smooth arcs, centered on the direction of the north magnetic pole. <br />
<br />
This was the night of September 2, 2016, from near home in southern Alberta. The Big Dipper is at upper left. The bright star reflected is Capella. <br />

This is a stitch of 8 segments, each 3-second exposures with the 20mm Sigma Art lens at f/1.6 and Nikon D750 at ISO 3200. Stitched with PTGui.
