Taken 8 November 2017
Some faint pillars can be seen due north (right) of the frame and a green "blob" of Aurora can be seen left.
We cleared briefly for views of the Northern Lights. It is rare at this latitude to see them like this when the moon is close to full like it was but these were bright enough to overpower the moonlight. What do we mean by rare? Our night observer, Ryan Knapp, has been here over a decade and stated this was only the second time he has seen them with moonlight present (and that's counting the times he's seen them off-summit as well).
