We have been very cloudy here lately so the lights have been very hard to spot..... this was about the only half-decent shot I got of them this winter, and it pales compared to the other shots in this thread.....

A road trip to Iceland is needed :)

My first hint the Aurora were there.
My view walking down to the beach, those are the lights of Milwaukee glowing off of the low clouds and Jupiter casting a glow on 2 foot waves on Lake Michigan. I took a series and kept noticing a green glow to the north which I thought was the lights of Whitehall on the low clouds, nope, Northern Lights! And they put on a show.
Ended up being quite a special night, rarely do we get the dark of the moon, clear sky's and on a weekend.   

Awesome.  Well done, d4mike.
