Thanks guys! Went back out last night to get some shots looking down the other side of the lake but the clouds rolled in just before sunset.

What did you use to capture those shots Mike? I'm way south of the equator, folks in Tasmania are seeing the Aurora Australis tonight, but i'm too far north to see it.

Those photos are fantastic. I don't see anything of the kind in my area.

Nikon D750 with a Rokinon 14mm f2.8 lens. Exposure time was around 20 seconds.

Oh wow, glad I took a rare detour into the tavern to catch this thread. I wish the sky looked remotely that cool down here around the 41st parallel...way too much ambient light pollution. :(

These were taken around the 47th parallel.

There's a few spots on the lake that have commercial power but most places are off the grid. There's a small town to the north which throws off a bit of an orange glow in the shots facing up the lake.

It's so dark that satellite spotting is easy. There's a few captured in my pictures. If I'm going to frame a shot, I'll edit those out
