Details:
These images are from Saturday night, May 5th. There was a G2 class geomagnetic storm but it was cloudy all around the horizon except for straight up. Looking up I saw what appeared to be a bright jet contrail illuminated by the moon, except there was no moon and it became obvious it was the phenomenon now called STEVE. It did not last long and it morphed from a violet and green arc to green fragments which changed rapidly. I have photographed STEVE more vividly under better conditions but this was the first time I really noticed how it changed from an arc to green fragments.
