This iReport is part of an assignment:
Your views of stars and space
Aurora falls into a forest
No photo shop here, just the real deal.
Have seen it hundreds of times in my life but never so pronounced that the radiation actually hit the ground and lit through and behind the forest
The big dipper and Orion are in the stars in the photo.
Amazed that this could even happen. The colors were incredible, mauve and pink and emerald. And yet it is different where ever you see it. But somehow you know you have really seen something when it is so bright you see your shadow on the snow from it in -30 below weather.
