SASKATCHEWAN -- A Pinehouse nurse captured spectacular live video of the Northern Lights over the village in Saskatchewan.

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.

Dre has a true passion for photography, but his night time photography is what really sets him apart from the rest. It takes a lot of patience, planning and instinct to have a successful aurora chase! Highly recommend this photographer as the qualities listed above, cannot be bought nor can they be faked

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That is what happened for me today as I viewed his once in a lifetime shot of an Aurora Borealis that spoke to me in an extremely meaningful way of a Butterfly and Angel. Delving into his long (and continuing) list of talents and accomplishments, I look forward to following Dre Erwin’s photography and life’s journey. It is a good day!

By putting cameras in the hands of these youth, a nurse literally is saving lives in the north.
