These pictures by Nick Strobel are the aurorae seen at the edge of Fairbanks, Alaska just before the autumnal equinox 2007. These pictures are copyrighted by Nick Strobel. You may use these pictures if you clearly and explicitly cite my authorship of the images and show how to get to my website at www.astronomynotes.com. If you want to use any of these pictures in any sort of publication, please contact me for permission and I may have a higher resolution version suitable for printing.

These pictures were all taken on September 21, 2007 at the edge of Fairbanks, Alaska. The aurora stretched from the northwest horizon to the east-southeast horizon so these images capture only a section of the aurorae at a time. See the larger image page for details on exposure settings.
All of the images are timed exposures ranging from 2.5 to 30 seconds long so the images will show more color than what the human eye (which has an exposure time of about 1/10th of a second) can see.
