Toward North, a huge storm cloud occupy the horizon and mask the sky till 15 degrees of elevation. I put my camera to put in the foreground a tree recalling the cloud. It seems that its silhouette cast itself in the sky.
The minute long exposure didn't show the green (just visible behnd the cloud), but the sky is all illuminated by red light.
The aurora is huge and cover the sky from Lyra (on the left) to Great Bear (partially masked by the cloud). A few minutes later, I start another 5 minutes exposure.
