    It ended up being a really good show last night. Initially I just set up the camera and went inside; the lights were very dim and hardly visible to the naked eye. It's been a while since I've actually been out taking pictures, and since the sky was clear and dark, I figured I'd make the most...

    I have no idea on how to get my boyfriends 10 year old son to stop leaving lights on in the house. When it is even daytime he turns on the hall light to the stairs to go to his room and will also turn on his bedroom lamp, t.v to play his games and then leave his room to go outside or even...

    Tonight may be the night! A significant solar flare occurred yesterday evening, X5 class. This is near the top of the scale. Analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab estimate that the CME will reach Earth on March 8th at 0625 UT (+/- 7 hr). Central Standard time in North America is UT -6...

    The lights have been out for the last few nights, decided to take the camera out again. Hope you guys aren't getting sick of them! Got another short timelapse video. And the video (I need to find a place to get decent background music): Northern Lights in the Forest - YouTube

    Anyone else happen to catch the show last night? Right around 10:30pm CST to after midnight. I was just heading to bed, and as per usual, I peeked out the window to check the sky. Well, I didn't have time to go anywhere to set up, so for something completely different, I set up the tripod in...

    There is a pretty famous area here that does a wonderful neighborhood display. You can donate at the end of the block if you want and they give you candy canes and a cute way of saying thank you. It's a big tradition every year. Didn't make it last year, but tonight we took the kids and my...
  9. Question and Answer
    I'm trying to put holiday lights around the inside of my front windows. I can't put nails or screws in my new vinyl windows. Suction cups won't stay put on the glass or the plastic frame. I have even tried the bigger sized ones. Help!

    It's been a pretty quiet for the last little while. After a few great shows in the summer and early fall, there has been little activity for nearly a month, maybe more. I was finally able to get out for a few nights where there was both clear skies, and aurora activity. Here's a few shots...

    Anyone else get a chance to see the Northern Lights last night (Monday)? I missed the most active part, inside watching a hockey game. A friend called me up and asked why I wasn't outside looking up. I was pretty disappointed to say the least. Managed to get a few pictures though. I'll get...

    As a result of significant events over the last few days on the sun, a severe solar storm is currently in progress. The intensity is nearly off the charts (currently at a Kp of 8.7, tops out at 9.0). If the skies are clear where you are tonight, get outside away from the street lights and look...

    Aurora season is generally over by the end of March, beginning of April, but the sun is waking up from it's 11 year nap and has been producing some spectacular displays all spring so far. Decided to go out and check the sky last night. Pretty nice night around midnight. Taken with a Nikon...

    Taken last night (April 5th/6th) between around midnight until just after 3 am. I woke up around midnight to my wife's snoring, and before settling in on the couch, I looked outside. I went out into the backyard (we live on the last street in town) and set up the tripod. The aurora was very...

    Last night there were the best northern lights so far this year, at least visible to us. Supposed to be just as good or better tonight, but of course, it's cloudy. I tried a different location, I wanted to try composing some shots with some of the town lights in the frame. I think they turned...

    Anyone else out there fortunate enough to see the light shows from time to time? We had some activity tonight, so I had another chance to break out the camera. These were taken between 7:00pm and 8:00pm today (March 1st). We are in a fairly active area, so we are graced with their presence on...

    Wondering if anyone one has bought LED lights and where you got the best deals on them? I'm assuming places like Wal-Mart, etc., or the week after Xmas they'll have sales.

    How do you turn off the pilot light? How do you relight it? and if it is off will my house fill up with gas and blow up? Considering doing something in my kitchen which involves a flammable spray paint, it said to turn off your pilot light first. I've never had a gas stove before and don't...
