Details:
The Aurora Borealis from Indiana; My Southernmost Northern Lights sighting yet; after doing laundry I was preparing for bed at 1:32 am when I read that there was an Interplanetary Shockwave; figuring that we are approaching Solar Minimum and this may be now or never for some time, I immediately started driving north, in the direction of several windmill farms. A weak green wisp showed up at 2am and faded, but shortly after 5am a sudden outburst occurred and the purple pillars were easily visible to the naked eye. Photographed just 5 miles north of Purdue. Its funny how one minute you are in a humid dorm struggling to get the laundry door closed, and the next minute you are chasing one of the most spectacular phenomenon known to man.
