I was out shooting this beautiful sunset when I got a very sad call. My friend's mother has been very ill for quite sometime and had just passed away. She was a beautiful lady and I'm dedicating this to Mary and the wonderful life she shared with her family and friends. Thanks so much for the wonderful sunset, Mary. God bless.

Hard to believe there are northern lights, of any luminance at all, when there are still leaves on the trees. (To me, they have always been a winter phenomenon) On this night, the moon was bright, the aurora not-so-bright, and the golden leaves were brilliantly lit by the jealous moon.

Reflected Rays (richardb)
As the sun was setting in the west through gaps in the clouds, a beam of light lit the mountains on the east side of the valley. An earlier thunder shower had passed through the east side of the valley apparently leaving enough moisture in the air for the sun rays to bounce off the lit mountain back over the valley. I had never seen this effect.

Katy, 'the sky was brilliant, sun was bright, the autumn leaves were glorious' - you wrote.
I selected that your 'Dinner Cruise' photo here, too.
Nature carries unique beauties there in these circumstances.

Thank you Katy your kind attention and comment, too!
Generally I am somewhere close to 47,498970 north latitude and 19,043604 eastern longitude; here auroras occur rarely.
So we are happy to see your beautiful newer photos.

So glad to have found your blog Andras, what a wonderful resource for solar and atmospheric activity! I'll definitely be following your blog!

I hope very much to be able to get aurora shots for you, with this current (magnificent) event, and over the course of this winter!

Ah - you did get some of the auroras, as photographed by Katy in Alaska! Wow! We have a slim chance of seeing them here in Maine, but probably about 2 degrees latitude north of where I am. The impact of the flares sure made for some colorful skies!

This may be our first shot at seeing the aurora in Solar Cycle 24. We're at 38.6° N 90.4° W and haven't seen anything so far this cycle. Hope you get some photos! Thanks for the info.
