"Memorial Aurora over Split Rock"<br />
<br />
When Split Rock Lighthouse is crowned with the brilliant aurora borealis, the scene is even more stunning than usual. It is surreal to witness this spectacular phenomenon pulsing overhead in the vast starry skies. Saturday night's aurora show began at nightfall and continued at varying intensity all night long. We stood in awe beneath these pulsating skies until nearly 4:00 a.m., enjoying the light show and the accompaniment of spring peepers, chorus frogs, and a whippoorwill.
