All-sky aurora - 27.8.2021 at 22.30 - 28.8.2021 at 02.00 Salla Observation number 100751

Visibility V / V

Yesterday I saw the first northern lights of the season, which were quite dim, partly because the sky is still very light and I told myself that the week is waiting for the sky to darken and then look new. Today, however, I watched the northern lights curves and the time at the pin was. As usual, I pedaled by bicycle to Salla Ruuhijärvi sometime after 10 pm and already in the middle I noticed a huge northern lights above the head. I stopped on the road, conveniently under the street lamps, and took a couple of pictures with the camera by hand. The stars did suffer because I didn’t bother bothering to dig in that situation.

The lake came to a standstill for a few hours and for most of that time most of the sky was covered in northern lights, but time remained dim. Every now and then there was something brighter for a moment.
