Aurora conditions became unexpectedly high two nights ago following a long period of southward directed IMF either related to coronal hole effects or a glancing blow from a CME. Either way, NOAA observed three periods of minor G1 geomagnetic storm conditions (maximum observed Kp at any point in a 3 hour period) during the European evening/night and this caused spectacular auroral displays near LuleÃ¥, Sweden. Enjoy!





If you also have images from this night please share them!

Altough not the best pictures in the world, they have been taken in Rovaniemi, Finland right from the balcony of the appartment I stayed. I apologize for f***ing up the focus on some of these ;)

All taken with a lousy Canon EOS1100D and the awesome Canon 24mm F1.4L USM II

Yep, actually they were a nice present for my fiance's birthday party over there ;-)


Just looked at the EXIF data and those were taken between 18:30 and 21:30 UT. I was very blessed with some pretty neat Aurora sightings while my travels over there, if you take the shitty weather in rovaniemi into account ;)

We're planning on driving along Norway next year's Autumn as weather seems to be much better over there (even though we're probably on decreasing sun activity then)
