Aurora and Milky Way over Lake Sunapee

It was a fantastic early morning (2:30 AM) on Lake Sunapee Sunday June 8, 2014. I went to try to make some panoramic images of the arc of the Milky Way. I found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Actually it was the Northern Lights at the northern end of the Milky Way. What a surprise and treat.
