Aurora seen in Arkansas last night
Arkansas storm chaser Brian Emfinger, author of the aurora video and photos, had this to say:
"What an incredible display last night! I just happended to check out spaceweather.com around 8pm and saw that aurora were being seen in Ohio so I thought I would throw my camera outside and see if it picked up anything. The first image had some very light auroras which put me into a immediate panic as to where I should go. I decided to just run out into the field and within just about 10-20 minutes the auroras went crazy. I had lots of problems with the auroras being overexposed… I obviously havent had a lot of practice! Here is a time lapse of the aurora explosion… and again… this is from ARKANSAS!"
