Purchase Prints or License | A still from the time-lapse below. It was a really good start to the month!
At 12:30am I was editing the previous time-lapse and I saw on the computer screen that the Poker Flats all-sky cam was entirely glowing green. I ran outside and set the camera up for the second time and started shooting. It was really cool to watch this time. The lights were still a bit diffuse, but they filled the entire sky! Next time I’ll have to bring out a second camera since after about 20 minutes the real action was happening behind me. It took a lot of willpower to not move the camera. The following time-lapse video is 400 frames shot over 45 minutes and compressed into 18 seconds of video.
