One of the advantages to small-town Saskatchewan, is that it’s easier to escape light pollution than it is in a city like Regina. I was fortunate to be out of the city on June 29th in the very early morning, so have many fantastic aurora (Northern Lights) photos and animations to share. A south pointing solar wind storm was hitting the magnetosphere, so we got very pretty lights.
They appeared even to the south of me, at about 49 degrees latitude. Kansas saw them apparently.
– Here’s one from overhead, as a satellite streaks south.
– The church has become disused for religious services it hosted for Catholics and United, for more than three decades. The grain elevator behind the church needs saving, as it’s in the cross hairs for demolition if a group of interested people don’t step forward to give it a new direction. The Grain Elevator, a NFB film, was filmed in this particular elevator.
