Probably the most memorable night of my life, taken in October 2021 during an extremely active solar storm.

Was tucked soundly in bed when a friend of mine messaged me to get my ass out of bed because there's a high chance of Aurora tonight. Quickly got dressed and drove 3 hours and hiked up to this viewpoint just in time to catch the show.

-30c plus windchill, we froze our assess off until 330 in the morning before we finally called it and beaded home.

I was at this almost exact same spot in September for our honeymoon. Such a beautiful view from there. Great job with the photo

If you’re a video game fan, this looks like an image straight out of The Long Dark

On a scale 1-10, close to what your eyes actually saw would you the say the picture is?

Like an 8, obviously the foreground was darker, but the sky was easily as vibrant, it was the most incredible thing I've ever seen and it really changed me
