April 2002: Aurora from my backyard

In April of 2002, my wife and I had just returned from the local astronomy club meeting, when I checked out the aurora sentry website. Activity was listed as 10, so I quickly ran outside to look to the north. Just above the tree-line and the fence, was the aurora. It was just over the northern horizon but I called my wife outside. My wife was enthusiastic as this was her first auroral display. It was fun as we took photographs and watched for over an hour as the aurora danced above the tree-line.
