Come on, come on! Blow up!

Yet another night of aurora forecasts that said we could have a really big show.  We've missed the last couple of big displays because of clouds.  We finally had clear skies here in Bear Valley, and when a very bright band of green appeared around 11 pm I thought we might be on to something.   You could just tell they were getting another strong show up north around Fairbanks or Delta Junction.  There was a nice band of pink at the bottom for a bit, which usually indicates a strong show, but once again, she just never really got going here.  Grabbed a couple of shots and finally gave up at 2 am.
