Wow, -72° and I'd have to set myself on fire just to stay warm.

Well worth the shot, though, great cap!

Great shot! Nice to see that there's places that are colder than we are in North Dakota! We used to see northern lights quite often up here but it's been a long time since we've had a good light show.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Normally I'm out for an hour or so shooting the Aurora, but this is about as cold as I've been out in and just took a few quick shots and back in the house. Luckily I don't have to leave the yard to get a picture.
