2020-07-13 A day to remember

Published on

Bud Wiekle, Greg Johnson, Ryan Mollenbeck, Tiffany Schaefer and myself went out storm chasing this day and were treated to some incredibly pretty storms and even a beautiful summer aurora show and a once in a lifetime comet.

This day was originally planned for the Saskatoon area, but as the models changed the targets changed and we ended up South West of Regina in the Francis Saskatchewan area.

We spent the day tracking and photographing small cells, as dark came we shifted from shooting structure and started to capture lightning. Once the storms were out of reach we travelled to Carlyle and headed North on the #9 highway.

On the North side of the Moose Mountain Provincial park we were treated to a long distance view of the storms moving East and the Milky way core to the South and Comet Neowise to the North.

A little further North on the way home the Aurora exploded with bright magentas and greens. This in combination with the Neowise comet and a perfectly positioned old barn and we spent the next few hours ankle deep in a slough shooting one of the most spectacular events I have had a chance to experience.
