After a fabulous night shooting the Noctilucent clouds on July 14-15, I was waiting last night for the weather to clear up and to be able to go out again for a repeat…I was on and off the bed until 2 am, when finally the clouds moved away and clear sky was predominately over the Kakwa – Waipiti area. Went out with high hopes to catch again another NLCs display but instead I was in for a big surprise. The sky was clear and at the horizon was just a tiny, skinny band of NLCs stretching from east to west. While I was waiting I noticed that a faint green arch was getting bigger and was getting more consistent by the minute. At last, the arch exploded into a beautiful Northern Lights display with pillars, swirling curtains, covering the whole sky from east to the west and also overhead with some incipient coronas. Everything lasted for about 12 minutes at high intensity and after that the sub storm subsides to a pulsating phase dissipating all over the sky and in the end disappeared totally into the void, from where she came……(D800, Nikkor 24-70mm 2.8, ISO 2000; 3 seconds exposure; f 2.8, 24mm - Wapiti - Kakwa, Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada – July 16th, 2018)
