Since the first shots at around 20:40, the clouds moved in and the northern lights slowly withdrew to the north, as if the show was over.

3 hours later while walking my dog I see a fast moving swirl over the tree tops, and quickly walk home to grab the camera. There were no more swirls in the high position I saw them during my walk, and the remaining lights displayed mostly behind clouds, and lower and lower in the sky.

I did catch something I did not during the first session – pillars! Colors ranging from green to pink. Nice!

Unfortunately a helicopter moved into the scene, and that’s the green streak with white dots in the lower left.

A great evening in my book – many thanks!
