Unfortunately no pics (left the slr and tripod at home), but half a drunk softball team of and I spotted some lovely flowing green aurora more or less overhead in the dark skies of Brackendale, at a fun locals bbq. Easily visible, approaching vibrant between 2 and 2:30am. Pretty nice show for Squamish!
I've personally only ever seen aurora that visible in a solar storm a few summers ago in the yukon, on an evening hike on Mt. Grey above Whitehorse, curiously again around 2:30am. But like last night we were lucky with our timing for sure. Its quite an enchanting phenomenon, especially last night after several tablespoons of patron, lol.
