On 10-24-2011 the forecast was for storm level Aurora displays. My son and I went out that night west of Madison, WI to shoot some timelapse and take stills of them.
At one point they were so bright, they lit up the ground, it will be hard to edit the timelapse because they were almost over exposed at that point.
Some stills are now available for prints on my Zenfolio page.
Also seen on the Huffington Post, CNN, ABC and CBS network news channels.
The clip above is from the extended cut of Temporal Distortion

Photos by Randy Halverson and River Halverson
Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 60D and Canon T2i with 20 second exposures
Timelapse was shot on a Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly and will be seen in my next timelapse, coming out this winter.
