Hey HarbringerDawn - you should submit that photo to the Astronomy magazine, they are always looking for stuff like that.

You are a lucky astronomer - whenever I go out, all I see is pure white from the wildfire smoke. Its like a scene of of The Mist :(

midtskogen, I got a notification from my aurora app, but I was too tired to walk outside and have a look. Seems I missed something really cool. :(

Excellent shot!

It's a setup of four cameras, one will be replaced with a better one, and if my calculations are correct, the cameras will then combined cover the entire sky, effectively giving a 10 megapixel view of the sky recording up to 30 fps.  15 fps, which was the setting that night, seems to be a good compromise, though.
