Diffuse Aurora | March 1, 2012 - lwpetersen photography

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the print lab will be experiencing serious delays. Orders can still be placed, and they will be fulfilled in order of their creation when the lab returns to its normal production schedule. Thank you all for your continued support of my work, it inspires me to try to inspire others to get out and explore. You can still follow me on Facebook for daily images if you want a distraction. I sincerely hope we can all stay healthy and happy during this difficult time. Wishing everyone the best!


This is a diffuse aurora display taken from Fairbanks, Alaska. It's fairly typical to walk outside late at night and see the sky this way. It doesn't have the brilliance that we get with many of the geomagnetic storms, but even so there were a few moments when real "structure" appeared.

I'll slowly be getting more Hi-res aurora videos up here. Probably very slowly. You can check out more on my Vimeo page for now - they just won't look as clean full screen.
