This past Sunday night the Northern Lights shown over Duluth. This photo was taken at about 2:30 a.m. from the Hawk Ridge Viewing Platform. Hawk Ridge is a great place for watching the Aurora Borealis as the viewing platform gives an unobstructed view of the northern and northeast skies over rolling hills with very few lights to ruin the experience.
If you are interested in joining some of the Great Lakes Aurora Hunters in the middle of the night, connect to our Facebook group. We also get together occasionally during the day! If you just want to increase your chances of seeing the Aurora, these two links are great resources for northern Minnesota viewing:
- F5 Aurora Viewing Data (six hour conversion to local time from UTC)
- Ovation Aurora (link about two hours after sunset … intense lime green with reds is good)
The trees in the photograph’s foreground were lit up using some light painting (i.e. a flashlight!)
