So, what is so special in the photo?
I can't see anything

I'm not sure there is anything "so special", but I like it regardless. The moon is surrounded by a halo, which isn't horribly rare, but I like the effect visually when I see it. The high altitude clouds within the halo provide some texture, while the green aurora streaks the image and to my eye anyway, make the overall image appear somewhat like the image of a huge eye, hence the title. as always, to each his own when viewing an image. For me, this is one of my favorite aurora images, as simple as it may be.

What's really mysterious is how the aurora manages to spell out a signature and a copyright notice in the middle of the sky! That's almost the first thing my eye was drawn to.

Maybe it's subtle enough that it doesn't damage the image much aesthetically, but it sure doesn't help the image's credibility as a single exposure.

Maybe you do need an eye exam after all. Or a new monitor.

I like it. It works very well for me. Simple but mysterious.

when somebody adds a watermark, I think it's understood that isn't part of the original exposure .  I suppose it's rather pointless with this picture in low res so I'll take some reasonable heat on that issue. Other than normal photoshop levels and such, there is no compositing or airbrushing done here.
