Unlike the hours Lee Petersen and others have to keep to get shots of the Aurora Borealis, here in Kern County, California, we can capture our local lights during daylight. The infamous Central San Joaquin Valley Lights, or Smogaurora Borealis, is a daily phenomena caused by high levels of smog interacting with sunlight. The lights are limited a little bit in the Winter months, but, since we don't really have Winter, the lights can be seen almost year round.
(No truth to anything above except that Lee doesn't get much sleep shooting the Aurora Borealis.)
