The photos were made 3 hours and 16 miles apart. The northern lights were photographed over Glacier Natl. Park at 01:18 from a Forest Service location (48.6084°N 114.1729°W) that is 6 miles west of Apgar and 6 miles south of Polebridge. The light pillars were photographed in Columbia Falls later that night at 04:33 on my way home to Kila. The mountains were mostly clear while the valley had tiny ice crystals drifting about.
