Amazing Aurora

Last night Seattle was treated to the side effects of a level 5 geomagnetic storm. It’s so rare for the Northern Lights to be visible this far south, even through all the Seattle city glow!

We let kiddo try to stay up but it wasn’t getting dark enough fast enough, so he dozed upstairs in our bed while we waited. About an hour later I woke him up and we went up to our roof deck and marveled at nature and the power of the sun. There were definitely a few other folks out on their decks to enjoy the light show.

I mostly just let my phone (iPhone 15 Pro) select its own settings, which seemed to be mostly prefer a 3 second exposure. It was actually able to pick up the colors of the ionized oxygen and nitrogen better than the naked eye!

Wow.
