The Northern Lights in California
October 29, 2003

Clear skies in central California - quite early on a Wednesday morning: This beautiful red auroral display appeared over the northern horizon at 00:25 AM and lasted for about 25 minutes. The Big Dipper (Ursa Major) was completely covered at times by the easternmost part of the fast moving display. Very bright vertical rays appeared to be moving horizontally during the first 15 minutes, accentuating different areas of intensifying activity within the red curtains.
