Following a heavy overcast day, I wasn't holding out much hope of viewing a potential auroral display in the hours after midnight this morning. I woke up just as the calendar clicked over to November 7, and saw that according to spaceweather.com the Kp index was up to 5 with a possibility of intensification. Since the dog hadn't been out since we fell asleep during the second period of the Red Wings game, we stepped outside. I to check the cloud cover and Roscoe to water the lawn.
In the 3 hours that I napped on the couch the skies had just about cleared. I packed my camera gear into the car and headed toward Ludington State Park. As I headed up County Rd 116 I noticed glow through the clouds to the north. I pulled over and took a 10 second exposure with my camera held on the dashboard. There they were, the elusive glowing green pulses that I hadn't seen since...Wednesday.
