A 360 degree fish-eye panorama of the odd isolated auroral arc that has become known as Steve, here across the bottom as a pink and white band, across the south, with the main auroral oval to the north at top, with its more normal oxygen green arc and upper red and magenta tints, also from atomic oxygen. This demonstrates the relationship of the Steve arc to the main auroral oval, he is always equatorward of the main oval, and defines the southern limit of the display. Auroras are not seen south of the Steve arc. The Steve arc seems to be a thermal emission from hot flowing gas rather than from precipitating electrons. But his origin and nature is still mysterious. This night, September 27, 2017, the Steve arc appeared for only about 20 minutes, from 10:45 pm MDT pm, as the main display hit a lull inactivity. The display later grew to cover the sky with a post-sub-storm flickering display at the zenith and to the south. Steve is always well south of the main oval, and usually only when the main aurora is not very active. The 6-day moon is just setting at the bottom of the summer Milky Way. The Pleiades is rising at upper left. The Milky Way runs from northeast at upper left to southwest at lower right. The zenith is at centre.

A composite of the Perseid meteor shower on the night of August 11/12, 2017, taken in rural Alberta, Canada, over a wheat field with the waning Moon rising at right. The radiant point in Perseus is just left of centre. M31 is right of centre; Cassiopeia is above centre. As usual, there is one imposter satellite above the radiant looking like a meteor moving in the right direction, but with a uniform trail that gives it away as a satellite. The moon was a waning gibbous this night. This is a composite of 19 images: one for the foreground and sky and one meteor, and 18 for other meteors layered in using Lighten mode and masked to reveal just the meteors. The camera was not tracking the sky, so the meteor layers were all rotated around Polaris at upper left to place the meteor for that frame in the correct position in the sky relative to the background stars where it appeared, to preserve the perspective of the radiant point in Perseus, which rose through the night.

A 180 degree panorama of a modest aurora display behind grain bins on a country road in Alberta, Canada. The aurora adds more color to a sky also filled with green airglow, while at the ends of the roads are yellow glows of light pollution from Strathmore and Calgary at left, and Bassano at right. For a few minutes there was also the sharp edge at left to the aurora rays, present in 3 frames of the panorama, so it is not an artifact of the stitching. The Big Dipper is left of centre, low in the north.
