October 21, 1999 Auroras

This was a pretty strong show, thinking back on it at the time of this writing (2013). I was working on grading papers and prepping the next class I was teaching at St. Cloud State when I took a break, looked up at the sky, and saw the auroras above me. I grabbed my Olympus OM-2, which already had ASA100 or ASA400 film in it, and I grabbed a roll of the other speed (100 or 400) and drove over to St. John's University.
