Selective Focus: Northern Lights

We sure do love our auroras up here. There are predictions of moderate activity tonight and Saturday according to the internet experts and local astronomical legend Astro Bob.

The week of Sept. 17-23, Night Sky Week will be taking place in Duluth. Click here for more information and a schedule of events. The project is organized by Starry Skies Lake Superior, a group raising awareness of the effects of light pollution.

One of the main events will be a showing of the movie Skyglow. The trailer below is pushing some product pretty hard, but there are stunning images in it.

Filmmaker Harun Mehmedinovic will be at Clyde Iron Works presenting and discussing his project on Sunday, Sept. 17, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Here are recent aurora sightings previously seen on PDD, and some shots from a few of our favorite local photographers.

Most people have probably seen this by now, but the view of the auroras from space is pretty amazing.
