Image Details:

I went out late last night intending to capture milky way shots but was distracted because my phone kept pinging with aurora alerts. For the first couple hours my shots showed low horizon color, but I was able to see them increase in height and movement just before 1AM. I was lucky, this intensity lasted only minutes before they settled back down to a low ribbon of color along the horizon.
