After several hours of a reasonably decent display, the sky rapidly brightened forming an obvious corona straight overhead at 1:18 AM local time. Since I have been experimenting with real-time aurora video, I quickly set the camera for HD recording. I also snapped one still photo with the camera set in HD video mode, but that one says it all. It was bright enough to reveal vivid colors to the naked eye, and this image was not heavily processed. This was the most impressive auroral event I have ever witnessed, and although it was short, it made up for it via intensity!

Nikon D4s camera, Rokinon 24 mm f/1.4 lens, 0.6 second exposure at ISO 3200
