Brief Directions

Drive along the NorthShore of Lake Superior. At Two Harbors, Minnesota head north into the wilderness.

Notes

The lake's name is Greenwood Lake. Dark Skies rates the area in which I was photographing a #2 (A rating of #1 is the darkest; a #10 would be similar to the night sky in midtown Manhattan)

Description

In early August, the Northern Lights danced across the skies all night long. After staying up all night, I had just pulled into a public water access to catch a few winks, when the Aurora exploded one more time ... in the early pre-dawn light! Took this selfie by adding a ten second delay to my camera.
