The Blue Brick | Inspired Yarns

Tito and I went north again last night – in hopes of aurora hunting after sunspot AR 1520 delivered a massive X-class flare directly to earth.

Aurora 400

We’re getting quite adept at finding these things 😉 We got our best shots not 1.5 hours from downtown Toronto – just outside of Barrie, south of Mt. St. Louis Moonstone.

We cursed every time a car or truck passed us on the highway, but to our delight when processing these turned out to be the best shots!

I apologize for the image-heavy post – there were so many winners it was very hard to pare it down to a few favourites.

Northern Lights Toronto

We call this the ‘light saber’ shot 😉

This was one of Tito’s favourites. Incidentally we’re blogging together this morning!

We couldn’t believe how bright they were. Waving and flickering were visible to the naked eye, even from a busy highway.
