While shooting some time-lapse video of the Colorado high county this year, I took one last excursion to the mountains above 12,000 ft. On Sunday night I captured this time-lapse from 8:00PM to 4:00AM, and caught the Aurora that was so widespread across the eastern US. Watch the video, as the Milky Way exits right, the green Aurora begins as a haze at about 11:30, flowing to the left (east) and exiting about 4:00 in the morning. Who needs sleep?
On a fairly heavy Denver - San Francisco flight path. How many airplanes can you count? (they are not meteors....)
