    Default Aurora Photos from Rochester, NY



    Several of us made it out to the Ionia observatory (home of our local
    astronomy club), where I took photos. Here are the decent ones.

    The colors were constantly changing. At the peak of the show, the lights
    were diverging from the zenith above Mars, I'm not quite sure why that
    would be.

    Anyway, if you look carefully, you'll see me in one of the photos. And
    I'm especially happy about the photo of Mars bathed in green light.

    Enjoy! Andy

    Gawd, I went out too late, around 10 PM, and missed the excitement!
    It's difficult t o see anything in the area of Rochester. Get north of
    the city far enough, and you;re in the lake, dang it. Only other time
    I had a chance to see an aurora, I was too young to give half a dam
    and it wasn't really much anyway-

    curses!

    You didn't have to go north of Rochester to see the aurora better. You
    can head south towards the finger lakes, like the west shore of
    Canandaigua lake. It's much darker in that area.

    That's really true. With such a powerful display, just getting to a dark
    location was the critical factor. Early in the day I had posted a
    message to our astro club's mailing list that I'd be at our observatory.
    I received one message back saying that there wasn't a great north
    horizon there, I should go to the lake. My response was that if the
    aurora was too weak to make it over the trees at our observatory, I
    probably wouldn't want to photograph it anyway! And as I saw, the aurora
    hit the zenith and beyond, dark skies definitely turned out to be the
    critical factor.

    I watched it from the northern end of Cayuga Lake, probably 60 miles
    southeast of Rochester.
