When I saw good graphics , I went outside to see if there was activity and I saw nothing due to light polution but I took a picture to be sure and my photograph reveal a green arc. Then I decided to go on a dark site to apreciate the show ... it was a smooth show with different greens and rays sometimes ! It's nice to see that the northern lights are back 8) C Dominic Cantin For more images http://www.pbase.com/dominiccantin

There's no words or images to describe a geomagnetic storm , but one thing is sure , it's that we pass by all kind of emotions :) During this aurora , I even had a thought for the victims of the World Trade Center because of the date !

A burst of aurora appeared at midnight on 5 sept. 2005 during an astronomy night. I was with Alain Couture , Jean Chiasson and Jean-François Dion in the Laurentide Wildlife Reserve at the milestone km 103 ( Foret Montmorency ). A "truncated " arc was there like if the aurora had not enough power to complete the arc ! It reminds me like if it was a proton arc , especialy under the big dipper. photo details :16mm or 18mm @ f 3.5 , 20sec , iso 800, Pentax *Ist Ds © Dominic Cantin http://astrosurf.com/aurores http://www.pbase.com/dominiccantin

Solar Minimum ??!!?? The Sun is supposed to be in a period of minimum activity these days !? That's the first time that I could see 4 northern lights in 7 days!!! These aurora occured in the week of July 31, 2005 to August 7, 2005 during my vacations to the Lake St-Jean at ~250km to the north of Quebec city. This aurora is very weak but I count it nevertheless ;) To see more images from that week , visit my page here http://www.pbase.com/dominiccantin/4en7jours © Dominic Cantin http://astrosurf.com/aurores http://www.pbase.com/dominiccantin

During the calm aurora , I've made a test with a 135mm lens ( = 200mm in 35mm format ) and the result is nice at my eyes. It's not often that we see an aurora photographed with a 135mm lens ;) 135mm@ f 2.8 , 15sec , iso 800, Pentax *Ist Ds © Dominic Cantin http://astrosurf.com/aurores http://www.pbase.com/dominiccantin
