Beautiful!! One day I will see these! I've seen the aurora australis (being an Aussie) but never seen the borealis! (RevMac, you can also get alerts on www.spaceweather.com. One of my fave sites)

Thanks for posting this.

I miss seeing the Aurora. I used to live in Michigan and would sometimes catch a glimpse like this shot.

Wowser! These are beautiful. We don't have much hope of seeing them down in NM, like I used to in Montana. Have seen a tiny bit of reddish glowing a couple times here in Northern NM, but that's all. I see your alerts for your area all the time, & can only envy you.l

Congratulations on this AC & Thanks for sharing.

So amazing! I like the composition too. I think that the two observers give the picture some perspective and make it more interesting.
