Use to see auroras when I was stationed at Fort Drum, NY. Not quite this vivid, but when you're from Los Angeles... It's an awesome site to see in person. Thanks for the Pics!!!

This one was actually a 30 second exposure at f/2.8, ISO 640. Those aren't my usual aurora settings though. It's usually something more like 6-15 seconds, f/2.8, ISO 1600, give or take depending on how bright they are that night.
