There's a hint of light to my north, but I can't make much out.

Pretty dynamic display actually. We were actually able to make out curtains, pillars, and some reds. Luckily, one of the forecasters had a camera handy too, a few great shots in there.

Very cool but alas I missed it last night--not sure how, but I did.

I'll be out late tonight and will be sure to pay attention...!

That brings back some memories...I used to like the open field south of Stonehenge where we played Rugby. With the road there, you had a great view of the northern sky. It's better when they are overhead too.

Awesome pics all around! Love the MWN ones.

A couple examples one of the forecasters from GYX submitted to Spaceweather.com last night. The red hues weren't so apparent with the naked eye, but all the texture to the aurora certainly was.

This is taken just outside of the WFO parking lot. For reference, the orange glow just above the treeline on the far right is the lights of Lewiston/Auburn.
