Aurora borealis

Recent solar activity lit up the skies tonight.  Faintly visible with the bright moon surrounded by a colorful corona.  Long exposures brought out the color in the northern lights.  Caribou Lake made for a nice mirror.  I had to fight with condensation on my lens as the temp dropped to 39F and humid air came off the lake.  I got to see a really great shooting star...unfortunately not captured with the camera.  I also had the pleasure of listening to 4 or 5 Barred owls calling back and forth.
