Auroral Wisps
Auroral Wisps
Location:  Hutchinson, MN Image ID:  A0065
Date:  Monday, November 8th, 2004 Photographer:  John Carlson

Notes:  Many aurora photos require 15 to 30 second exposures to gather enough light to create a usable image. During this time the aurora moves, blurring out the details. This aurora display was bright enough to allow a shorter exposure time of 2 seconds, freezing the details with a clarity usually missed.
