An 8 sec exposure showing structure Nice rays at the zenith - note the Pleiades The lights extended far south at times - here shown below Orion in an 8 sec exposure
Clouds present in the north made for nice contrast The eye could only just notice the reds seen here.

For a period the most interesting structure was at the zenith as shown here The constellation Orion was in the SW at the time At their brightest, a 16 sec exposure was almost over exposed
