Dramatic Aurora Footage

No sleep last night, Neva and I were watching the sky light up even with a full moon that tried to wash out the Auroras Borealis just north of Saint Cloud, MN.

The solar storm from the X Class solar flare finally hit and we shot stills and a pretty sweet time-lapse video as the storm was peaking as a "G3" Geomagnetic storm just after midnight as the KP reached 7.  

If the full moon was not out, this would have been a major event that would have been seen as far south as Kansas.

Here is the time-lapse footage from this morning that I put together of this event.  This is from midnight to after two in the morning.
