Northern Lights? Not!!!

Last night we were supposed to have a rare view of the Northern Lights here in the Pacific Northwest. Yippeee!!! I was so excited! I had my camera all set up with the correct settings and my alarm on my phone was set to wake me up at midnight in case I fell asleep. Well, it didn't happen. They didn't show up. I took pictures anyway and here's what I got. Lots of stars! 

The brightest star out there is the North Star.


The Little Dipper

The streak in the upper right corner is a plane.

There's the airplane again moving toward the upper left.

This could be my favorite.
