Last week Wednesday night the bright Northern Lights covered much of the sky for a short period of time. As soon as I stepped outside, the lights were clearly visible in town, even with the Banff street lights. I decided that was the night I was going to take pictures of the Northern Light from town. Went to few location including next to the Bow River. The brightness from the town lights made it difficult getting the reflection on the water of the lightsbut I was able to for some of the stars, including the big dipper. It was a night losing some sleep over.
