The satellite imagery never tells the entire story, in the same way space weather data doesn’t tell anywhere near the full story of the aurora. But of course, it’s still something good to have in your pocket.
On nights like tonight, with broken layers of cloud at just 190m, we had to expect that the weather data was going to look a lot more happy in our hands than it would feel good actually looking outside. But we had windows tonight, and we shuffled across the Ingraham Trail into pockets of clear sky, and of course she was waiting for us there.
