A rare treat to see the Auroras so well even with the light pollution of Edmonton just northwest of where this photo was taken.

I recently visited the Telus World of Science in Edmonton and watched a presentation about the Aurora Borealis and learned that you can subscribe to an AuroraWatch alert to be sent to your inbox if the chance of seeing the Auroras is high in the Edmonton area.

    Nice catch, Roxanne, and thank you for the link. I’ve signed up for Aurora Alerts, so I stand a chance to catch one myself.

  • Thank you Robert! I’m glad that you signed up, I was looking at the online gallery in the Edmonton Journal tonight and they had a shot with the Northern Lights right over the city, so you might not even have to leave the light pollution in order to capture them. Good luck!
