Quiet aurora band - 15.1.2022 at 01.15 - 15.1.2022 at 01.55 Äänekoski, Suolahti Observation number 103828

Visibility II / V


I went outside with the dog when I was wondering about the thick, light line over the sky. At first I wondered how the line of the plane would look so wide at night. In my space, I checked the pages that the observation points of the whole of Finland glowed red. Then I was sure to see great, wide-ranging northern lights here for the first time here (I lived abroad for a long time)! They were widely visible, but a bright arch shone in the middle. Unfortunately, nothing but a cell phone camera was included. The northern lights faded and disappeared at 01.55. Luckily, there was a cloudless sky and the light beam of the agglomeration was not disturbed any more (the street lighting is reduced to less than half by night).
