After being out most of the night enjoying and photographing the Northern Light show, the Aurora died down significantly around 5:30, and then, just like in a fireworks display, came forth with the Grand Finale of the night just before 6 a.m. and the whole sky lit up. It lasted 15 or 20 minutes, and then was gone. This was from the peak of that final show.

I believe this is one of the most beautiful photographs of an Aurora Ive seen. So pretty I felt compelled to create an account so I could leave a comment. Thank you Paul for sharing this.

Theres such a sense of depth in your picture. The curtain effect is wonderful!

This is an amazing photo.... I have seen so many aurora pictures and this would be in my top 10.

Thats why Im sooooooooooooooooooo sad it is extremely low resolution... Ill never understand why so many good photographers have such low resolution monitors.

@ ltparsons if you upload high resolution pictures, they get used and re-used everywhere without permission, including by big rich companies that totally ignore the copyrights...

Having said that, I believe its a matter of finding a good compromise. Personally I upload 1400 pixels on the long edge, although yes sure, full HD resolution would be much nicer.

By the way, splendid picture here!! :)
