We were treated to a show last night for the first time in what feels like ages! It was short, but intense! People managing to be in the right place at the right time were Matt Melnyk, Zoltan Kenwell, Joern Rohde, Chad Steeves, Adam Taber and Kevin Sharman, who have shared some fantastic photos. Thanks to all.



Matt Melnyk sent these awesome images taken just to the south of Edmonton, near the Airport at around 01:30. You can see more of Matts images here:

Zoltan Kenwell sent these great images from last night:

"Well, we had a bit of a rogue event this morning! I was watching data around 8pm and noticed Bz was south for some time, so I geared up and hit the road. The show really started around 12:10am. I imaged till 3:30am and called it a night. Each of these pictures is from a time lapse sequence. I will be working on the video over the next few days."
