Three of the aurora shots that I took of the 10/30/03 aurora display have been posted at http://dvaa.org/Photos/DaveMitsky/

I hope to have the rest of the shots online before too long.

Yeah, great shots, Dave.
Is the color enhanced or was it really that beautiful with the naked eye???

Any long photographic exposure will reveal more color than can be seen with the human eye. The original prints (which were merely the result of the film's color response and the processing machine's notions of what the actual colors were) were touched up a wee bit in Photoshop.

However, the brightest patches of the aurora were distinctly a pale green or a light red to my eyes.
