String of lights over Lake Michigan off of Bridgman nuclear plant.

A ham operator decided to have a look at the "northern lights". Weko Beach, Bridgman, Michigan, offered an excellent view of the northern sky. An excellent photographer this person took a series of relatively high resolution photos of the aurora with his Nikon D7000. Can get probably get the exact camera settings, nomenclature and lens info if you need it.

Rough coordinates for the Weko Beach (public) are: 41° 57' N; 86° 45' W.

If you like I can get the exact coordinates from a signpost on the beach.

As the ham club newsletter editor and friend, the photographer sent me two of several photos taken. They are:
