Other notes: In my mind this display was best of the fall so far! It had a lots of movement, discrete features and nice colorful outlook. Just a pleasure to watch. :-)

25/26

Lens:28mm f/1.8 at f/2.0
Films: Kodak Elitechrome (slide) 100 and Fuji Sensia 100 (slide) and both pushed to 400.
Exposure times: See captions.
Other notes: It was forecasted that this could be one of the Great Storms of this solar cycle, but when the time came...It shrinked and was not so great after all, but only a moderate G2 class storm, which failed to make an low latitude appearance like was estimated. Still for me here in high middle latitude it offered some real treat! Like you can see...:-)

Although the intense and very bright red color which visible in the slides, is mostly missing from these.

pictures maybe back later...written oct. 9 2004


23/24  

Lens:28mm f/1.8 at f/2.0
Films: Kodak Elitechrome (slide) 100 pushed to 400.
Exposure times: 15 or 30 sec.
Other notes: This was the first good aurora of the autumn and I was right there in time...just to find out that the conditions were hopeless. Clouds, heavy wind and rain got the upper hand this evening. Still despite of all, this evening made some pretty extraordinary memories for me. Because this was the first and only time when I have seen coronal aurora in rain! Yes, you read it right. There was a corona overhead and it was raining during that same very moment!
