"Aurora of 2001"
November 5
Albany, Missouri: 40 degrees North Latitude

"I observed a fairly remarkable display of Aurora Borealis on this night. I learned of it from reports on the Internet and quickly ran out to see while yelling for mom to do the same. Streamers of deep red were visible for a while but a ghostly green glow hugged the northern horizon throughout most of the night. It did not equal the 1991 display but was good none the less. I took a few shots and these are the best from that night. "   D. Bush
