Aurora in Yellowknife by Martin Izzard

“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.”
