“I was in Yellowknife in September 2017 staying at the nice and dark Buffalo Nights Bed and Breakfast when the “Merry Dancers” appeared. It was a strong showing Kp6-7 and I was able to video them with my Canon 6D using a fast 24mm lens f1.4 at low ISO of 800. I pinched myself as she danced across the sky. Can’t wait to go back again.”
