Hoping for the Best Expecting the Worst
And reality was somewhere halfway between the two.
Worse weather was on the way in toward Yellowknife this evening, but despite seeing the cloud bank on the horizon from the time we left Yellowknife, we spent much of the night under clear sky. The hope was for very good auroral conditions early tonight. This was not such the case. In spite of all that, we spent our hours under a slightly washed out Milky Way and more gentle arcs of aurora.
