Northern Lights Over the Snake River

Northern Lights Over Jackson Hole

Last night there was a nice display of Northern Lights on the northern horizon of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Wanting some water in my shot, I headed over to the Wilson Boat Launch along the Snake River outside of Jackson, Wyoming to catch it. While I wasn’t able to get the compositions I was quite hoping for, I was pleased with the results that I did come away with. Depending on the time of year and conditions, I’m tempted to do a short hike somewhere for the next time.

While the Aurora Borealis are pretty regularly on display in Canada and Alaska, there’s occasionally a solar flare from the sun that, when aimed just right, will push them down into the northern United States, and on rarer occasions even further south. This is the third time I’ve seen the Northern Lights since moving to Jackson, Wyoming and all times they’ve been on the northern horizon.

  1. Thanks again, Edward! Upon moving up here I was very excited to learn that they do occasionally make appearances down here. I've been keeping a watchful eye on the northern lights forecasts ever since.
