Northern Lights

Jasper gets north­ern lights from time to time and I got to cap­ture these images up at Patri­cia Lake. The road was way too busy to avoid light pol­lu­tion, but did man­age to cap­ture some images. Not as col­or­ful as I had hoped, but I prob­a­bly did not wait late enough. These were tak­en between mid­night and two am.

The auro­ra can be seen best at this time, which is called mag­net­ic mid­night. In north­ern lat­i­tudes, the effect is known as the auro­ra bore­alis (or the north­ern lights), named after the Roman god­dess of dawn, Auro­ra, and the Greek name for the north wind, Bore­as, by Galileo in 1619.
