While camping in Algonquin Park the strongest aurora in years lit up the northern sky. Although conditions were partly cloudy the green glow can be seen under long exposure photography. This aurora was created by sunspot 1261 which erupted into an M9-class solar flare reaching Earth one day later on August 5th.
