Active aurora band

12.10.2021 at 21.00 - 00.30 - Pyhäranta (III)
Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

Ehtoo became a bit of a regulator because of the clouds, which is why the story about the evening also bears its name: in the operation-closed tube / The evening started by driving to Kalanti, from where the focus spun on its hind legs to Pyhäranta, where there are pictures of the evening. When the fog and clouds finally receded, there was time for a repo set. I inched at the man that it would look just like we’ve had in the sky either a) dunes b) sar c) both. There was a moment of snads in the sky in the northern arc of the so-called dune shelf, and I was also wondering about the very reddish...

Half-sky auroras

Taisto Komulainen

Excited I waited for hours if the weather would clear in the dark when the weather was cloudy all day but it turned out as if by order but the Northern Lights arc was very quiet and it seemed that the cloud retreated to the cloud curtain again.

Anu Tossavinen

Encouraged by forecasts (both weather and Northern Lights), the car trip to a clear area rewarded with a myriad of images. Shapes and colors changed almost all the time. Pictures 1-3 Suvanto, Pelkosenniemi and pictures 4-5 Savukoski approx. 00.45-01.15.

Auroras seen through breaks in the clouds

12.10.2021 at 21.00 - 23.59 - Tampere (III)
Kari A. Kuure, Tampereen Ursa

Northern lights from cloud crevices and partly through clouds. The G1-class magnetic storm brought with it northern lights, which were also visible in Tampere. However, the cloud cover was relatively strong, so this time we only had to settle for repos visible through cracks and through the clouds. I also uploaded the video to YuoTube's Ursa channel in Tampere, the address is AB2021102

Auroras seen through breaks in the clouds

13.10.2021 at 00.00 - 01.25 - Taipalsaari (III)
Terhi Törmälä

Even though the weather was foggy and rainy in Lappeenranta and the surrounding areas, I had to go on a "desperate trip" with the camera. Well, it wasn't. On Taipalsaari in Suur-Saimaa from two different points. The first was taken at 0.47 and the second at 1.17.

Active aurora band

12.10.2021 at 22.30 - Hankasalmi, Murtoinen (III)
Arto Oksanen, Jyväskylän Sirius

The bright northern lights were badly left behind the clouds, but as the sky became clear for a moment, in addition to the high northern lights of the northern sky, a red northern lights belt moving rapidly southward appeared in the zenith. SAR? All night timelapse:

Half-sky auroras

13.10.2021 at 00.30 - 01.00 - Inari, Turvejärvi (IV)
Jorma Mäntylä

The northern lights in Inari were so handsome that I went to the shore of Lake Turvejärvi at night to see and photograph. In the sky, a circular oval orbited the North Star. It varied in color and shape. On a calm night, it was reflected on the surface of the lake.

Half-sky auroras

12.10.2021 at 20.00 - 00.00 - Valtimo (IV)
Eero Karvinen

The sky cleared suddenly and the diffuse oval that had reached the height of Otava said that now we have to go. Reaching just south of the zenith, the play eventually provided a pretty sub-storm, and in the expansion phase, the dune potholes and SAR arches also stood out dimly. The vivid image has been modified to showcase the dwarfs, and in the weave image, the SAR arc dims the image from the middle stages from below toward the orbit as a dark red dim striped area.

All-sky aurora

12.10.2021 at 23.00 - 23.01 - Salla (V)
Dennis Lehtonen

There were great northern lights last night. It is a pity that they could be watched mainly from the Sodankylä sky camera, as Salla and Posio seem to be the only Cloudy places in Lapland. Here, however, it was somehow visible at some point through the fool. At 2 o'clock at a time when many hours of giant fires were running out like a wall then the sky was perfectly clear.

12.10.2021 at 20.00 - 22.35 - Inari, Turvejärvi
Jorma Mäntylä

The sky became clear in Inari along Sevettijärventie and handsome northern lights flashed in the sky. The colors also stood out. The road to the Arctic Ocean was greenish in the light of the northern lights. EDIT: The Northern Lights show improved even more in Inari. I went to the shore of Lake Turvejärv, and there came really nice pictures.
