Aurora, August 18, 2003. This image was taken on the shore of Georgian Bay, a short distance from my home. The lights on the horizon to the left are on Cape Croker, about 20 kilometres away. The light to the right was a bonfire on the shore of Griffith Island, about 6 kilometres away. The people at the bonfire would have been facing south and I wonder if they knew about the aurora to the north. About 22 hours before this image was taken, also August 18, there was an even bigger aurora display in the north.
