I learned that a potentiall good northern lights display could occur November 3-4. I packed my gear, prepared for an all nighter. There were northern lights visible in the evening, nothing special. I woke up in the back of my car at about 3:00 a.m., and the northern lights were very bright and active. However, the best viewing and time to photograph was from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. -- until when it got too light. This display was another example of how patient you have to be to see the best displays.
The four photos below are from the evening of November 3.
The photos below are from about 3:00 a.m. on November 4, 2021. The aurora was moving fast. It was an awesome to see in person.
The next set of photos were taken after 6:00 a.m. This was a beautiful substorm, great photos.
