Aurora, October 22, 2001. This was a particularly intense aurora. The viewpoint here is actually more to the east-north-east, rather than to the north. This photo also includes two bright planets. Saturn is the bright object on the upper right edge of the frame, and Jupiter is just rising into the clearing in the lower part of the photo, just to the right of centre. The bright constellation in the upper middle is Auriga.
