During the most intense auroral activity (on March 13, 2021) I noticed an intense pillar behind a cloud. And zoomed in on the structure. It is an example of the beautiful palette that the Northern Lights can present. Photo details: Canon 700D, Sigma 17-70 mm lens

Mars and The Pleiades. March 9, 2021.

Mars, and the Pleiades are moving apart from the close "encounter" six days ago (March 3, 2021). But, they are still a striking sight. Here photographed through a thin haze (on the evening of March 9, 2021) creating a corona around the Red Planet. Photo details: Canon 800D, Sigma 50-500, Unitec Swat-200, tripod.
