The evening before Halloween brought one of the brightest auroral displays visible in Connecticut in many years. These are 10 of the pictures we took from our home in Killingworth.
During that day, radio and
television stations reported the likelihood of an aurora because of an intense
solar flare. Shortly after sunset,
I went out to check the sky conditions. The evening sky was a deep, dark blue, and I was amazed to see a pink
glow along the northern horizon, even though the sky was not yet completely
dark! It was obvious that this was
going to be a good show, and it certainly was one to remember.
