The arc of Northern Lights starting a show in the deep twilight over Prelude Lake on the Ingraham Trail near Yellowknife, NWT. This was September 9, 2019. Light from the waxing gibbous Moon behind the camera also illuminates the scene. The autumn colours make for a good contrast with the sky colours. This was from the lookout point above the lake and main parking area and boat launch.

The Big Dipper is at left; Capella is at center; the Pleiades and Hyades are rising at right of center.

This is a 5-segment panorama with the 15mm Laowa lens at f/2 and Sony a7III at ISO 800 and all at 25 seconds. Stitched with PTGui, as ACR and Photoshop refused to joint the left segments.
