It's an amazing phenomena that I never tried to photograph before. I guess you had to be at the right place. However I should say that exposure is quite good for the sky.
Since it's a longue exposure (44.5 sec), I suggest you try next time to paint the forgrouknd with a flash or simply with a simple flashlight. Be careful not to overexposed the foreground. You just want to put few details in these dark shadows. Who knows? You may even lit an alien ? ;o)
Wellcome on TN and TFS.
