After an very busy night of displays this renewed arc became active and started to bend and snake with rays climbing from it and giving the illusion of large floating curtains. The colour was mainly from nitrogen giving the mauve hue and the display continued until dawn light around 3.00am started to drown it out. Fuji slide film pushed processed to 1600asa and taken with a Nikon FM2 body and 28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens with an exposure around 15-20 seconds.
