Aurora – Mother’s Day 2016

A couple photos from the huge Aurora borealis display Mother’s Day (May 7th-8th). Got an alert late saturday night and took off to Lake Minnewanka to view. The roadway was packed with people but the show did not dissapoint. One of the strongest auroras I’ve seen and it went on for hours.

On the drive back to Calgary you could still see curtains of light dancing across the sky. I pulled over at the rest stop near the Petro Canada on Highway 1 and Highway 22 (Cochrane turnoff)
