Welcome to the "2001 Aurora Borealis" gallery of astrophotographs.com!

The photographs below are among my most recent efforts. Included here are photographs from the 2001 Aurora Borealis display as seen from Conifer, Colorado in the early morning hours of November 24, 2001.

I awoke in Conifer, CO before dawn on November 24, 2001 and noticed an extremely bright generally red display of aurora with rays of white and light yellow, beginning west of Polaris in Cassiopeia, and moving slowly through north and stopping in the northeast in Cepheus. The display then dimmed, but returned in Cassiopeia soon, repeating the same general motion 2 additional times. The display began to dim and became a dull red glow along the north horizon about 05:15 AM MST, and then faded as the dawn began.

All the photographs were taken with a Pentax Spotmatic mounted on a traditional tripod. The lens was a 28mm at f/3.5; film was Fuji Professional Press P-800 color negative film pushed 1 stop. All exposures were 2 minutes and were taken between 04:15 AM MST and 05:30 AM MST (11:15-12:30 UT).
