Alberta Aurora - Prairie light - Shot with an old 5D2


Here are a few screen shots from a new timelapse video I put together.

On April 23/24, 2012 Earth experienced a G=3 geomagnetic storm. The Kp index, a measure of magnetic field, peaked at 6.33 out of a maximum of 9. The result of this disturbance created this Aurora event.

It was a beautiful spring night on the Alberta prairies. Temperatures were steady at 16 deg C with very light winds. As you can see there was some cloud cover, but I was able to get far enough away from it to still get a great view of the show.

Canon 5D Mark II
EF16-35mm f2.8
EF 24mm f1.4 ver 2
EF 15mm f2.8 Fisheye

Exposure times between 3 - 15 seconds at ISO values ranging from 800-1600

Here is a link to the Timelapse Video.





It's ALL about the light!
