Northern exposure

The Aurora borealis (the Northern Lights) shines over Speculator at midnight Monday, Oct. 8, reflected by the water of Lake Pleasant where Cherry Brook flows into the lake. The display is caused by gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere colliding with charged particles carried on the solar wind. Auroral activity peaks roughly every 11 years, according to the Northern Lights Centre in Canada. The next peak period is 2013.
