snap 2: John Mahoney gets aurora bored-ealis (and creates a spooky fun photo)

January 21, 2014

It was supposed to be the first northern lights over Montreal since 1978. Conditions were supposed to be perfect for the aurora borealis to provide a light display in the sky. At the Gazette, we couldn’t let this pass without photos at the least and, in a perfect world, video. I’m the night guy this week so…
