MILKY WAY 9286
On the night of August 11th & 12th, 2012 some friends and I spent the entire night out watching for the Perseid meteors, an annual event that happens each year in August. At the peak of meteor activity we saw over 60 per hour. The Milky Way Galaxy was also a visual treat throughout the night.

"Southeast Aurora - July 15, 2012"
You know it's an excellent display of the northern lights when the best views are no longer to the north! This particular formation of the Aurora was actually emanating up from the southeast horizon!
