Photo Of The Month

Collection From April 2008 To Present

Twilight Solar Storm
Twilight Solar Storm
This is one of my all-time favorites. A very active aurora developed during the evening twilight. The combination led to a color explosion in the sky leading to a rare set up of blue, purple, and green vertical pillars spiking through 2 horizontal green bands of light and the orange glow of twilight. All of this occurred over the remnants of a shipwreck at Whitefish Point, Michigan. A solar storm flared up in the sky right at twilight and continued non-stop for 6+ hours along the Lake Superior coastline at Whitefish Point on October 11-12th 2017.
