Aurora, Electrical Storm,
Taken by Robert Arn on May 18, 2013 @ Pawnee Buttes, Pawnee National Grasslands, CO

Details:

When I arrived at the Pawnee Buttes the moon was near the horizon but it was still bright enough to illuminate the landscape. The aurora was not visible to the naked eye. Only with a 30 second exposure did I know it was there. As I started to collect data, I noticed an electrical storm in the distance. The juxtaposition of the electrical storm and aurora made for a spectacular image.
