We caught a quick glimpse of the aurora through the clouds the other night…

By the Light of the Moon…

We have had so many cloudy nights this entire winter, I was starting to wonder what a star filled sky looked like.  On Friday we had one of our first clear nights so we headed up to Glacier…_Z3A6701

Aurora Borealis Dancing Across the Sky…

On the early morning of November 3, the sky came to life and the aurora borealis danced across the sky…IMG_3470

First hints of the northern lights…IMG_3484

Then they sprang to life!  We could even see color with the naked eye…IMG_3508 IMG_3523-2

The above picture I even caught a meteor from the beginnings of the Taurid shower…IMG_3505-2 IMG_3542 IMG_3532

Still dancing as I headed inside for the night, outside the bedroom window…IMG_3544

Twinkly Stars…

Last night we watched this crescent moon set, with a huge dark cloud hanging over it.  The only thing visible in the sky was this little moon…

Then slowly the clouds started to part…IMG_0193-2

Reveling twinkling stars…IMG_0196-2 IMG_0200-2 IMG_0203-2

All within a half hour, the sky went from completely socked in to just a few little clouds here and there.  Then as we walked home I accidentally hit my camera remote and this was what it recorded in thirty seconds… IMG_0205-2

Kind of funny!
