Duncan Lake-Northern Lites and Lyrids Meteor Shower

Out to find both and ended up coming home a bit after midnight.  I took a lot of pics but couldn't find any meteors or Northern Lights  Here is one looking down Duncan Lake of the Milky Way. Click on pic for larger view.

Beautiful...isn't that a shooting star in the upper right hand side of the picture? See the straight line?

Are the lights to the North Timmins or maybe Matechwan? I always wondered when I stayed there.

Was there for the Perseids a couple times. One time you could hear ones going thru the atmosphere.

Dark sky and quiet.

I wondered that myself so I checked by the angle of where I took the picture to Timmins. The angle was about 5 degrees out so I suspect that it is a reflection from Timmins. Bill

Thanks Bill - all I had to go on was paper maps. Been awhile since I was there - had the cabin at Breeze Creek that faces right up the Lake.

Think that about 60 miles if memory and map skills were correct.

Hard to find dark sky :)
