Half-sky auroras

6.2.2020 at 22.17 - 22.58 - Nurmes, Saramo
Maija Savolainen

Really beautiful, great northern lights and a strange moonlight. It was almost a full moon. The cold wind blew from the north. First, I noticed a green arch in the window that appeared green to the naked eye. Suddenly out, the camera was already ready, I knew the forecast. So came the right show. At the end of the show there was also northern lights dancing in the western sky and upstairs as well. And the colors were visible to the naked eye. really beautiful to watch. Nurmes Saramo in North Karelia. Those times are the times shown on the camera. (The clock was somewhat wrong at 10-20 minutes)...
