WInnipeg City Lights

Northern Lights showed up last night over Winnipeg!  (May 3, 2014)
When headnig to bed around 11pm last night I caught a glimpse of green out the window as I settled under the covers. My husband confirmed my suspicions and he told me to take some shots! I quickly grabbed the camera, removed the screen from the bedroom window and shot for about an hour.

They are not common to be so bright and active over the city since the lights cause so much pollution, but they were quite visible as you can see from the image below!

I was shooting at ISO 800, 4 seconds, f/4.
