9/7/05 Just before the AM twilight. I skipped school at Buffalo State to
extend my stay at Cherry Springs State Park for the 5th night. Unfortunetly
I missed Dr Vermette
's talk in class on Auroras for his Artic Geography
course. That AM we had one!!! Convienent huh?
5/15/05 The skies just cleared in Orchard Park ,as a nice breeze developed
off lake Erie. 3:45-5am. This aurora was so intense it moved south between
Altair and Vega. I'm sure this aurora would have been the best of this solar
max from a dark site. As twilight was very deep in the east the west remained
intensly bright. I heard little talk on news groups online about this huge
display ? I
've seen many auroras this past solar max from dark locations and this
one was the best I
've seen even from my vey light polluted house.
