My first aurora this month, and although fairly low down, it brightened up at times and was easily visible against the half moon skies. I also picked up some red airglow bands, not something Ive ever picked up before in a moonlit sky. The red wasnt visible to the naked eye, not surprising as it would be at the edge of the visible spectrum.

The shots were taken with a Canon 6d, Sigma 24mm lens, f2.8, ISO1600, 20 secs, and ISO4000, 15 secs, the first at 2223 UTC, and around moon set at 0027 UTC.
