Details:
This was a bit of a surprise aurora, but it was a decent display, peaking in a brief substorm between 1:00 and 1:30 am MDT on June 25, as seen from my location in southern Alberta. I positioned myself at the south shore of this prairie lake and reservoir, to shoot what I hoped was going to be a good display of noctilucent clouds over the water. But I got a nice aurora instead, in a bit of a surprise as activity levels were low. But in the closer panorama the NLCs are there, very low on the northern horizon. The wider panorama is a 360° view that includes the Milky Way. This is from latitude 51° N. The images are multi-segment panoramas.
