Last night I traveled up to Crater Lake National Park with photography buddy's; Joe Spendolini, Joe's Grandson Russel, Jason McMurry, and my Wife Crystal. We went up to the national park with the intent of capturing the Northern Lights.
Two days earlier, a large CME burst from a sun spot on our Solar System's sun. This blast of charged solar particles was on a collision with the earth. When these particles hit the earths magnetosphere, they react and create the phenomenon knows at the Aurora Borealis (in the Northern Hemisphere) and Aurora Australis (in the Southern Hemisphere).
