Well, that was certainly a first. There was a monster auroral display last night, but as usual this season, it was completely cloudy here in Bear Valley. I happened to look out the window around 11 pm to check the sky and the aurora was so intense you could see it behind the clouds. Got set up outside and waited and started to see a couple of holes in the clouds. There was a quick intense blast around midnight, and then total cloud cover, wind and rain moved back in.
