They come at night, mostly.

 
 

Went up north hoping to see the aurora from the most recent sun flares. Unfortunately, no flares, but I did figure out how to take some pretty star shots. I feel like I've developed a new toy! The possibilities of night shots are endless. It takes a LOOOONG exposure time (30 seconds or so), so one can't be too creative in the winter cold, but come summer...watch out!
By the way, the shadowing in these shots was from a full moon. It turned the night into day!

Cat, those are truly amazing. That must be quite a good camera you have these days to be sensitive enough to capture the stars that well without having to track them. Really cool, Cat! I used to be an amateur astronomer way back 40 yrs ago, but I just try to keep up with the trailing edge anymore. Glad to see you are having a great exploration of what you and your camera can do.
