Oh, what a heavenly light--and night!

By far, the most intense, most active, and longest lasting aurora display of the season here in Anchorage.  She started showing around 10:30 pm and then at 2 am this morning the aurora just exploded!  At times the sky was completely filled with aurora from horizon to horizon in all directions.  Wave upon wave of color, curtains, and spikes.  Corona exploding directly overhead and raining sheets of colors.  

Around 3 am, some puffy clouds began moving in, but they just added to the drama of the night.   I finally had to give up around 3:30 am--just couldn't shoot anymore.   As usual, I'm going to post way too many pictures, but I hope you like them.   Trust me, you want to see these on a big monitor :)
