Dre Erwin, who recently lived in the nursing quarters across from the health clinic, in a the village of Pinehouse Lake, captured the Northern Lights with a camera pointed at the sky when it was -50C!

While he’s aimed his camera upwards in the night’s sky about a thousand times, Saturday’s light-show was one of the best, he said.

"One of the brightest we've ever seen," Erwin added. "During the winter months, it usually gets very excellent, but this night was an exception."

Erwin's video has also attracted the attention of a few American television networks, and it may be viewed on his YouTube site.
