Medium Format - 2024 - Northen Lights - Day 133

OMAHA, NE (May 12, 2024) - So the previous evening was magnificent, but I had taken relatively short exposures. What I wanted to do on this evening was to get a longer exposure so I could see the star trails rotating around the North Star. Unfortunately, at around 22:00 there was nothing and I was ready to call it. But around 23:00, I decided to start an exposure for about 30 minutes for the hell of it. After about 25 minutes, I went back outside to bring the camera in. To my surprise, I could see a green glow coming up on the horizon. It quickly escalated to an awesome show, but for only 8 minutes and then it was gone. Below is my 25 minute exposure using the Hasselblad X2D with the XCD 45mm. A longer exposure would have been better, but it would have stopped after 40 minutes. Just glad I decided to shoot this one.
