Orion Aurora


Orion Aurora

 

I have a special fondness for the constellation Orion. It was probably the second constellation that I learned after The Big Dipper. It is easy to recognize in our winter sky. On this night, the aurora was large enough to intrude into the southern sky and grace the top of the frame. The glow from it was so bright, that there is a green cast on the snow in the foreground. The clouds are lit by the light pollution from the city of Calgary.

In the best light…
