Day 49 by FramedByNature Day 49 by FramedByNature
Day 49 of 365

The sun released an X2-class solar flare earlier this week. When it finally began to hit the Earth, Chris Allington and I headed north out of Omaha to Blair, NE. We met up with Mike Hollingshead outside of this barn, monitoring the northern horizon and waiting for out auroras. Unfortunately, the auroras didn't happen (though that glow on the horizon sure made it look like something was happening). We tried to entertain ourselves with some moonlit clouds passing overhead. Overall, the night was a bust, though I'm actually pretty happy with this image.

Oh yeah, and while we weren't shooting the clouds, I managed to type a paper for my Government class and fill out a review packet for AP Psych :)

Thanks man! The stars were really weird that night. You couldn't see a ton, but it seemed like the ones that you could see really stood out.

The night that it was supposed to be the most intense we had a blizzard. White-out conditions.
I suspect if it had been clear we would have had quite a show. The day BEFORE the flare it was BEAUTIFUL...relatively...5c...ABOVE zero...people were practically dancing in the streets. My garden was becoming visible.
A case of "out of the frying pan, into the freezer".

Yeah, you would have had a pretty good show if you could see them past the moon. That's probably the brightest I've ever seen the auroral oval get. Darn clouds!
