Aurora Currents

The sky as seen from the Chena Lakes Recreation area at 11:15pm on March 11, 2004. If you look under the 'h' in 'north' just before the aurora begins you can see where a shooting star was caught during this time lapse photo! The too bright star in the right field is the planet Venus.
