Aurora rays

I went outside to see if the cell could even have northern lights in the two countries. Crushing the horizon and a few test shots didn’t produce a noticeable result, so I changed the lens and started practicing stealing light from Seulas, with poor results there as well. As the clock dawned a little over three and the camera stared at the eastern sky, I suddenly saw clear and fairly fast-moving northern lights in the north. With a little flickering, I got the camera turned and grabbed a couple of images before the show dimmed very quickly with the naked eye (and almost also with the camera) in...

Would these be the night clouds that illuminate them? They aroused interest when we climbed inside the barbecue house and came to the scene to be picked up ...

The Facebook group of northern firefighters received information during the day. that activity would be in the evening. In the evening I decided to go and check the situation and in addition to the northern lights, the pictures were also captured by illuminating night clouds. Impressive sight.

I went to photograph the northern lights, but on the same trip the sky also saw illuminating night clouds to the north and northwest. The clouds were very bright.

The first northern lights of the season on top of the night clouds, mainly a calm belt, between active rays. Edit: After the night clouds disappeared after two, the northern lights show got off to a good start

As I watched the night clouds, the northern lights also began to catch on. They were at their best from 1 to 1:30 p.m. And then I stopped watching. In addition to the green, there was also a purple on the edge that I couldn’t get to describe very well.

Came to see such bright night clouds for the first time. :) I grabbed a few good pictures of them with my simple digital camera. It was great, but if there were still northern lights among them. EDIT: I added another HDR edited image.

At 00:30 I noticed night clouds in the northern sky. after 1 a.m., northern lights were also visible. at 2 countries still right on the horizon can be seen night clouds. At 2.30, I glanced out for the last time, and the night clouds were no longer visible.

As I photographed Repos, night sky clouds crawled into the sky to my delight. Rural tourism seems to be worthwhile. In one picture, the northern lights pillar is also recorded dimmed.

Now I have finally seen those night clouds with the sword! At first I saw it far on the horizon but kapas when I started to doubt repos so I came to see these too Edit: A cell phone hero is on the move again with her cell phone pictures Sure, these will show up for a long time to come but forced to go indoors before it gets cold just fine. :) And after all, this boy didn't bother to see when he was completely intoxicated from the horizon, the last picture is the last picture and then the feet in front of and inside the other.

After a few evenings the night clouds are visible again. An hour earlier, even northern lights were visible in the light blue sky. There must have been a big storm on the ground. Now it was no longer visible, but the night clouds intensified and expanded. I still left GoPro to photograph the timelapse, let alone see in the morning what was recorded from the night. edit: 2:00 The night clouds have continued to expand. I had to try to shoot with big big values, so the northern lights came from there. Image1 = 00:40 Image2 = 02:04 Figure 3 = 02:02

Then came a long time to go on a "night flight", and did not waste the trip. While driving in the countryside, I suddenly noticed reposet in the sky. Car in the parking lot, right at the first edge of the field and with a camera set. Northern lights activated to dance in the sky, sometimes turning into fog.

Northern Lights Opening of the Season. Rays clearly visible to the human eye in a sky that is still too bright. Farther behind the forest gauze. Visibility from the observation site is poor to the north, so there's probably better. Due to a bear moving in the area, I now left not to go to a worse puppy :)
