Wisconsin Auroras 9/30/2012

Tonight I wasn't expecting auroras.  My friend Scott Weberpal gave me a call to let me know I should head out, and I'm sure happy he did.  I checked the Solar Monitor and things were looking really promising for the night.

I drove up to a spot well northwest of Port Washington.  After about an hour of static green band, the show got started... and it was one of the most stunning displays I have ever seen... pinks, reds, greens and purples - like a laser show.  WOW!
