Lately Lori and I have been spending some overnights at her cabin in Copper Harbor (Copper Harbor Cabins) getting it ready for the upcoming summer rental season. It’s a place where one feels a part of nature and there is always something unexpected to see that makes you truly appreciate the simplicity of nature. I was hoping that one of these nights the Aurora Borealis would be active, but up until now that hasn’t been the case.
I actually checked the Aurora forecast earlier in the week and the predictions were that the Aurora would be quiet this evening so I never even thought to look. We turned in for the night and turned off the lights, but something wasn’t right. Did we leave the light on outside? Nope, but apparently nature did.
On all three sides of the cabin there was an amazing Aurora display firing off. It was actually going over our heads at times. It was easily visible with the naked eye. Just incredible.
The video below is a time lapse of images taken from of a variety of locations over the course of almost 3 hours. We have already been contacted by WeatherNation TV requesting permission to air it. Of course we said yes. Can’t keep stuff this cool to ourselves! This isn’t the first time someone noteworthy found my Aurora video. Last time it was an MSNBC blog. I guess this social media / YouTube video stuff actually works. See. I told you.
