Grande Prairie Milky Way

The forecast says tonight may have northern lights due to a recent CME activity directed toward Earth, so I decided to go out and try my luck. Unfortunately I didn’t see any!!! How disappointing. I did capture some milky way photos, instead. The light pollution from the city made the milky way difficult to see.
