NLC's
« on: June 10, 2019, 01:22:09 PM »
Grabbed a quick shot of last night's NLC's with my phone.   Looks pretty good but wish I was able to get a shot a bit earlier when they covered much more of the sky.

It is a rather blurry Capella, James.   The NLC's were much more extensive but the low clouds obscured them.  Someone with clearer skies got a much better photo and a video too.  https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/336525-nlc-10th-june/
