All-sky aurora

26.9.2022 at 22.55 - 04.20 - Veteli (V)
Tommy Lågland

Looking for trials and experiences for the tracking stand from the generally dark skies. It's tight and this time too the clouds slightly changed the course of the evening and the balance of the evening was a little lighter. And regarding the northern lights, it probably wouldn't be too bad to say that it was a bit cloudy. Attached are a few pictures of the wider views in the evening, where you can only guess the true magnificence of the sky behind the clouds. These have been stopped to be taken during the journey home in places that have happened, so the overall content is a bit light...

Aurora rays

I went on inspection trips to familiar, but rarely visited beaches, and had a few Model pictures taken in semi-darkness in mind for future autumn shooting evenings. The evening was cloudy, so nothing special was planned, and I only took a light backpack with the mandatory shooting glasses. In the twilight, I quickly took those test photos and they already showed a little green. As the evening darkened, the clouds thinned and the sky opened up and the northern lights also slightly activated. The quick stop then stretched a little longer and the light hiking clothes started to regret a little. A...

Quiet aurora arc

The low lying almost full moon didn't promise much from the point of view of the darkness of the starry sky. But since the sky was almost cloudless and the weather was pleasantly calm on the inland side, I ended up spinning on the nearby beach. The choice turned out to be a good one after I got to the shore, because the bay bottom I ended up on was almost to my mirror. Even in calm weather, clear reflections on those nearby beaches are quite rare, almost always some kind of wind breaks the surface of the sea. For more than half an hour, the landscape was colored by a slightly more active p...

Half-sky auroras

A few pictures of the events of the evening and the beginning of the night from 14 to 15.2022. It was clear to the scene shortly before nine in the evening and already on my way north that something nice was going on. Once on the beach, the stand was upright and immediately I was allowed to start shooting and admiring it, which the moonlight did little to curb. When photographing the dunes from the back screen, I didn’t quote, the shores were subtle, but I interpreted them as clouds shaped by the wind without much analysis. Looking at the pictures, it would seem that there are traces of the du...

Rocket-related clouds

This sight came as a surprise. On the autumn-dark beach, fully focused on taking pictures of the Milky Way, and when the exposure had begun, the light-splitting light phenomenon, which had caused almost slag, could strike the eyes and could not be grasped and processed at first. When the initial shock had come to an end, he realized that there was a light phenomenon to be exposed, so the orbital exposures were allowed to stay momentarily. The tripod was moved by a few meters to a better position against the water, and it was clear that the fast-moving subject could be caught only by reducing t...

Active aurora band

1.3.2021 at 21.45 - 21.53 - Kokkola (III)
Tommy Lågland

The ominous arc looked, lazy, but still such that it might leave some pain. Miscellaneous description until the arc slowly began to intensify and finally provided a moment of fireworks where a 360 degree vertical panorama of each image turned green. Reasonable delicacy like this in the south The pictures come with one slightly narrower panorama, one portrait and a couple of 360 degree panoramas. Figure 1 about a 360 degree panorama: 21: 47: 33-21: 50: 35 Figure 2 Panorama of about 180 degrees: 21: 45: 03-21: 46: 13 Picture 3: 21:46:44 Figure 4 approx. 360 degree panorama: 21: 50: 52-21: 53: 02

All-sky aurora

Along the red arc in the evening, which, according to the images, detached from the northern lights and formed an arc invisible to the eye, but seen by the camera cell, to the southern half of the sky. The picture was taken at about 01:00 when that red arch had already dropped a little lower. The image is stacked into a panorama of 11 vertical images each with 20s exposure. #sarg

Eight semi-random images of the western and eastern ends of the arc of northern lights were taken on 23-24 October at 23: 46-01: 02 when the red arch of that evening began to form and live its life. The times in the pictures. #sarg

Quiet aurora arc

14.9.2020 at 00.00 - 00.16 - Kruunupyy (II)
Tommy Lågland

A panorama assembled from eight verticals with 20s exposed to each image. The actual green was not visible to the eye, a small glow of light was visible, the delicate green light emerged in response as it lasted longer. Myself in this picture is preoccupied with those delicate green and rather regular rays above the arc. I thought there could have been humidity to which the shadows of the trees create those rays, but are they still? If the rays of the northern lights are so slow they are moving because they go into the area of several vertical images and each image is indeed an exposure of twe...
