Visibility II / V
The time is in Central Daylight Savings time. The data told me that there was aurora activity, but it took so long for it to get dark I didn't really see anything. I took some milky way photos and turned around to see a bit of activity. I didn't take many photos as it was very minimal activity, but when processing I saw an arc that looks like STEVE. I set the photos aside as I really couldn't tell for sure. When I looked at them today, I realized that there are pickets below the pink arc in 3 photos (0801-0803), so now I am assuming it was a STEVE. I have seen this faint arc in many photos and wondered if it was a STEVE. It is difficult to determine when it shows up against the main aurora. I believe that STEVE is there way more often than we can see, in this faint form.
