Aurora over Clean Air (ARO).

The small tracks close to Scorpius are Iridium satellites.

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.
