These pictures were taken on the night of 8 November 2004 in Bloomington and Shakopee, Minnesota of a vast auroral storm that occurred that night. The shots taken were done between 20 and 30 miles south of Minneapolis, Minnesota that night.
The camera used was a Minolta dImage Z2 4 megapixel camera in low light mode.
I was not using long exposure mode (which at the time I took these was clueless as to how to activate - I've since corrected that problem!) so I'm ready for the future.
The vast majority of these are green although I saw blues and pastel greens at different points in the evening. At one point a large square pastel green box appeared in a curtain of emerald and giant navy blue curtains appeared. In some of the shots, dim red spots can be seen in the green.
