The solar winds weren't strong enough for us to see the northern lights during our first night of aurora watching. I had fun playing around with my camera and tripod anyway. Most of the photos from that night were taken at a dog mushing arena away from the aurora-obscuring lights of downtown. The cold eventually got to us after a few hours, so we packed up and drove back to the hotel with the car heater roaring at full blast. Once we got there, I braved a few more minutes of the below freezing temperatures to take this photo of the full moon and the rings that had appeared around it during the drive.
