|| Chasing the Aurora & finding Shooting Stars ||
When the alerts started coming in on Wednesday night, a group of us quickly started grabbing cameras and layering up for some twilight photography. The chance of witnessing the incredible Northern lights or Aurora, was at its highest in months.
Pulling into Lake Minnewanka, the mountains were pitch black in contrast to the millions of stars in the sky above. We set up our tripods and began taking some long exposures, checking to see if the camera could pick up anything our eyes couldn't. Apart from some vague red glows we had no luck! What we did witness were three of the longest & brightest shooting stars streaking across the sky.
It was a night well spent with friends, laughing and stargazing.
