Image Details:

Saw the aurora alerts and was hoping for another chance to "see" them. Took a test shot from town and picked up some color. Gave myself a push out of the door with a Nikon Z6ii. I did a 5 second exposure with 800 ISO. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith out here because they are not visible to the eye. Had an hour of joy clicking away.
