Northern Lights Over Washington State

Well, here is hoping Facebook doesn't ruin the crud out of my time lapse video, and the story behind it.
"What a night!! I was all ready for a night of curling up on the couch to watch a movie when I just though I should check and see what the KP index was doing. WOW... It was a 10. I jumped up grabbed my camera gear and headed out to drive up to my usual spot above Ellensburg WA. I got there in time to start shooting my time lapse at 10 pm. I didn't stop shooting until 1:45 am. The oval was huge and massive the whole time I was there, all the way from NW to N to the NE sky. The ribbons moved and rocketed through the clouds and sky. I was not alone though, one of my other camera friends made it up to the hill also and we shot pictures in the cold dark night under the bright moon. Hope everyone enjoys this as much as I enjoyed photographing it. "
