Aurora of December 14, 2006
by Kurt Hillig

On the evening of December 14, 2006, there were reports of an aurora visible from the Ann Arbor, Michigan area.


Kurt Hillig took a number of aurora photographs that evening. He sent the following information:

After looking them (the photographs) over there’s really only one that I like (shown above). It’s been Photoshopped to reduce the noise (using NoiseNinja—a product I heartily endorse!), remove the airplane, and sharpen the silhouette of the trees (I’d bumped the focus—grr!).

Canon 20D at ISO 3200, 20 sec. at f/4.5, 17 mm FL. Photo taken from my back porch—the glow on the horizon is from the Baker Rd. truck stops, same ones we see from Peach Mountain.
