animation of 30 Oct 2003 aurora

Twenty images were taken with a Canon D30 with a lens set at 28mm, 10 sec exposures at 800 ISO, every 25 sec, raw mode. The images were converted to tiff, then in PS reduced to 8bits, stacked, and animated in ImageReady.

The streaks are airplanes (remember 10 sec exposures), the dots that are just barely moving up are the stars of Perseus (Algol or beta Per is the bright star just left of center).
