Airglow over Nickel Plate Lake
Pro photographer, Caillum Smith, took a group of us to Nickel Plate Lake for a night-photography session. We were hoping to photograph the meteor shower and perhaps witness Northern Lights. Neither materialized. About 11 pm I pointed my camera to the SE and took a shot but was disappointed that the sky came out green. I thought I must have changed my settings somehow but couldn't figure out how that would have happened. I tried to get rid of the green by changing the white balance and other settings but to no avail. I asked Caillum about the problem and he thought this was an atmospheric phenomenon called "airglow". Never heard of it. He showed me some pictures off the internet and so I learned something new that night. It was interesting to read about it the next day on the internet.
