Aurora over Clean Air (ARO).
The small tracks close to Scorpius are
To the left is the dome and skylab
A very bright meteor. One could see the flash on the ground.
Ripples are seen on the lower arch, a lot of the aurora forms move very quick and it's hard
not to blur them on a time exposure.
Another Iridium flare.
The following series of pictures is from the May 6th arround 23:00 UT. These are some
of the best aurorae I have ever seen. They were as bright as the full moon and on some pictures
a 5 second exposure was enough.
The aurora also reflecting in the dome. All the pictures were taken during a few minutes, but
the change of shape is amazing.
