This early February dawn was well under way when I caught it. Only minutes earlier, when I first woke, a much larger display loomed outside my window. So fast did the formation move, that much of it was gone by the time I pulled myself together and grabbed my camera.

I shot the second frame seven minutes later. The sky had grown lighter — so much so that it appeared but a pale image on my camera’s screen. Cutting the exposure let me replicate the contrast and saturation of the first photo. By then, however, the color palette had shifted.

The photo was taken on February 6, 2012.
