Definitely Unexpected

Aurora conditions were quiet. Like, first photo kind of quiet where the Milky Way was more prominent in the sky than the aurora. But stepping out of the car some 50 kilometres from Yellowknife and seeing the sky completely littered with stars, almost as littered as our oceans are with our trash, it almost felt like the aurora, if she would join us at all, was just going to be an organic, locally grown cherry on top.
And I’ll admit it right away, much to my surprise tonight, the aurora did join us, and several hours in, was absolutely spectacular.
