The sun has been quite active in the last few days, ejecting solar matter into space, and on August 5, 2011 some of this matter hit the earth’s atmosphere, and produced a low to moderate aurora. Several images were taken from 9:00-12:00 pm EDT on the skies to watch for aurora an other sky wonders.

Below are some images I took of the aurora and other constelations. Kevin was waiting for the Football game to start, but did come out now and then to check.

There was cloud in the sky, and the crescent moon was setting. Lots of air traffic, which ruins many pictures,but it was cool out with mosquitoes abound.
