Aurora – May 10, 2024

On Friday, May 10, 2024, an intense solar storm prompted a prediction of a potentially dramatic auroral display visible farther south than usual. These photos were taken just south of Pitt Lake in Pitt Meadows, just off McNeil Road beside the North Alouette River and indeed, the display was absolutely stunning, the best and most colourful I have ever seen in my life. They were shot with my Fujifilm X-Pro2 and the new Fujinon XF 8mm f/3.5 R WR ultra-wide lens. All shots were taken at f/4 and the ISO was either 800 or 1600, and exposure times varied from 2 seconds to 4 seconds mostly, with a few up to 8 seconds.
