Churchill Northern Studies Centre
A 180° panorama of the aurora borealis from the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, Churchill, Manitoba on March 18, 2020. The Kp Index did reach to 4 this night in a fairly active display that lasted all night, though with no very bright substorms. Some members of the Learning Vacations aurora group are out enjoying and shooting the show. Others are inside keeping warm observing in the aurora viewing dome and lounge.
This is an 8-segment panorama with the Sony a7III camera at ISO 1600 for 10 seconds each with the Venus Optics 15mm lens at f/2. Stitched with Photoshop.
The second image is from the same site from a year earlier. It is a panorama of the auroral oval across the northern sky, with the stars of the winter sky to the south at left, over the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, in Churchill, Manitoba. I shot this February 7, 2019.
This is an 8-segment panorama shot with the 12mm Rokinon full-frame fish-eye lens (in landscape orientation) and Nikon D750. Each was 20 seconds at f/2.8 and at ISO 3200. Stitching was with PTGui. The panorama extends over about 300° – not a complete 360°.
