Unbeknownst of any aurora activity near Crater lake, Brad and I were shooting away and then we noticed a purple haze in our cameras. Brad looked up on twitter and it was on fire with an aurora activity of about 6 on the Kp-index. This was my first and they say "First Time is Always a Charm" and it sure was. I wish I could get the beam of light but i was dead tired and called it a night after a few shots.
