During the Canada Day long weekend, the Sudbury Astronomy Club hosted their New Moon Star Party in Grundy Lake Provincial Park near Britt, Ontario. The evening of June 30/July 01 was clear, although heavy with dew. I took a few pictures at the beach beside the amphitheatre, where the club had set up some telescopes for public viewing, and then at 2:24 a.m., I took my camera out on a rock overlooking Gurd Lake, beside the Hemlock campground, and lucked in to catch some Aurora Borealis.
Sagittarius, the Milky Way, and Jupiter, as seen from the beach by the amphitheatre.
When white light gets into your scene – headlights illuminating foreground trees; fortunately, they added a surreal artistic effect to the scene.
