Auroral Crown by Cathleen Mewis

Photo of the Week for April 14, 2018

Auroral Crown by Cathleen Mewis
As solar activity continues to wane, so does the frequency of northern lights displays. But from time to time, a good show still occurs. And the farther north you are, the more often you’ll get to witness one.

This striking corona-type aurora was captured just outside Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, by Cathleen Mewis, in the predawn hours of May 28, 2017. She recorded the 4-second exposure at ISO 800 with a Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR camera fitted with a 11-16mm zoom lens set to 11mm and f/2.8.
