As South As You Get
It was a 5 Kp aurora alert from aurora forecast. I got the email notification around 10 PM and looked at the forecast and realized that it’s a pretty strong one. Well… 5Kp is a units that measure it and 5 is a pretty high number meaning there are a very high chances that you will be able to see aurora.
Anyway…. I started picking my gears after reading the report and heading out towards a direction that have more chances to see. Which is heading north towards Whistler direction, but I didn’t make it that far last night as I stopped as my usual stop at Porteau Cove. Started some time lapse sequence there. The night sky was half clear and half covered by clouds. And as time goes, it gets more and more cloudy… I wanted to go further north hoping to get some better shots after the time lapse sequence were done. But as I packed up all my gear and drive, clouds covered the entire sky. So I have no choice but to head home… mmm…. It was almost 3am when I got home…
I hope it will come back tonight!!
Thank for your view!!
I know this is nothing compare to millions of Aurora photos out there. But still, I’m pretty happy to capture this. Especially it is only about half hour north of Vancouver. Which is why I named the title!! “As South As You Get”
Have a good day!!
Thanks for visiting!!
