last night’s aurora

Last night the aurora came out about midnight. As I was driving south toward North Pole, the green streak lit up brightly in the sky behind the clouds. In just a few minutes, the aurora wrapped itself around the sky in all directions. The lower picture depicts the aurora facing north about 15 minutes after the first picture was taken. The aurora continued about an hour, the smoke from the wildfire rolled in closer to the ground, and the sky could no longer been seen in many areas. We had reports that the aurora came back later on in the early morning, and the clouds and smoke moved along.
