Northern Lights on the Prairies East of Calgary

Aurora Borealis during a Solar Storm

Early in the day on Tuesday I saw an alert that the Aurora Borealis would be active that day, possibly reaching “Storm Levels”. But it was cloudy and raining in Calgary at the time so I didn’t think too much about it. I kept the idea in the back of my head about maybe going out for a late night drive if it did clear up. It didn’t look like it was going to happen until after midnight when all of a sudden the clouds around the city lifted. So I packed up my gear and headed east. I’m glad I did because it turned into an amazing light show!

The aurora got stronger and stronger the entire time I was out there and even as I was packing up to head for home (and my bed) it seemed that it would probably continue all night. What an incredible event to watch!

After posting a couple of these images to my social media accounts I have already had a couple of inquiries about buying prints. You can find an entire gallery of images from my Aurora hunting trip in the Fine Art Photography gallery on my website. From there you will be able to order Framed Prints, Canvas Gallery Wraps, Metal prints, and more.
