This is not my work but a photographer called Phil Hart and i think these shots are stunning

In early 2012 I spent nine weeks based in Canada's Yukon Territory on the biggest astronomy and photography adventure I've ever tackled. The primary reason for going all the way up to the Yukon was of course to photograph the northern lights. But the conjunction between Venus and Jupiter in February/March provided a nice sideshow.

This sequence was taken with an entry level Canon 1100D (Rebel T3) proving that you don't need expensive cameras to take great night sky images.

but then very bright and active aurora kicked off even before the end of twilight. From my point of view, this night made the whole Yukon adventure worthwhile!

Unfortunately, the aurora never really came to the party on either night, but you can at least see the quiet green glow

I think that this blokes dedication for sitting outside in subzero tempretures has paid him back with these stunning pictures
There is a video on his site of this i tried to embed it but still need to work that out
It is well worth seeing

Some more of his work here
And what lead me to this is here
Copyright stuff

I think that these photos are truely great and wanted to share with ats
Enjoy and watch the video

The Pleiades don't hurt the effect either.

Thank you for the eye candy, simply stunning!

ETA But 2 months living in his van? That is either some dedicated dedication or...he had a row with the wife.
Sorry, I couldn't resist "creepy van man, with a camera."

I remember seeing this happening earlier this year (the line-up). However, seeing it as presented here is quite a privilege. I would love to be able to see the stars without the light pollution. Thanks for sharing.

I think there were Aurora on Jupiter photos posted at one time.
If an Aurora occurred on Earth then every planet in the solar system may have a similar
effect. Big news or no news how could we know. The passage of currents are 24/7 and
only show up with an excess of particles from the Sun.
