I came home from the store and admired the cloudless sky, while I was annoyed when good observation time was wasted. Pipe out to cool, the main target of the night was the asteroid 4143 Huziakin crossing at. 2:40. I looked at the machine for what could be described in the meantime and noticed an increase in magnetic activity on the meteorological pages. Pick up the phones and see the northern lights on the nearby ice of the Gulf of Luulion. After all, in the sky, a magnificent cannon began to calm down and wake up to the flames again. I took these pictures on my iPhone. I also tested the Samsu...

I noticed the first northern lights of the evening from the alarm from the northern lights guard, I just didn’t have time to shoot. At night I woke up at 1:30 and looked at the magnetic activity on the website of the Meteorological Institute, being in red. I rushed to open the window and shoot with the phone, so I didn't go out anyway.
