The Aurora Borealis

I'd heard wind that a meteor shower known as the Eta Aquarid would be most prominently seen on the night of May 6th, 2016. It was supposed to be a big one, remnants of the passing Halley's Comet. So, being the prompt young mind I am, I waited until the 8th to go and take photos. 

This, however, was my finest moment in a long history of procrastination. Although I didn't see but one shooting star, I caught a slight green hue in my viewfinder. After both raising my ISO and lowering my shutter-speed, I discovered one of the most beautiful sights I had ever seen.

Local news stations reported the show as one of the most spectacular displays of the Aurora Borealis in over a decade. As the night went on, the colors only got more brilliant and vivid. I could see the dancing streaks with my naked eye.

We (@rylan_heist, @stevenscarcello, and @missmolvik) pulled up around 11PM and didn't leave until 3AM. A perfect night.
