Active aurora band - 19.12.2021 at 22.15 Sotkamo Observation number 103224

Visibility III / V

Not visible

Despite the twinkling of the lights of the moon and the agglomeration, the really bright northern lights, showing green and red, a hint of purple at the bottom. Faded in a few minutes each. Because of the buildings, I couldn’t properly see the northern sky from my observation site if there would have been more northern lights there. Northern lights ran like a ribbon across the entire sky to the east, weaving and rapidly changing shape. Too bad there was no camera included.
