Visibility IV / V
I went to the switch on Thursday night because CME arrived. It had been cloudy all day and it was a little tense to see if the clouds would give way anyway even though the clear area approached from the west based on the satellite images.
I got to my hiding place in eight countries in the evening and at that time was still almost completely cloudy, only the moon occasionally appeared in the southern sky. In three quarters, however, the sky became clear so that I began to distinguish the green northern lights among the clouds. The first image at 8.44 pm The sky became almost completely clear in a few minutes and the diffuse arcs rose really high, even crossing the zenith. Another picture taken at 20.56, with the arch high. A strong sub-storm started around 9:15 p.m., and it formed a northern lights high in the sky. In fifteen minutes the sub-musk was over and the recovery phase began with its chorus waves. After that came a couple of smaller downturns. After a little while, beautiful red tops formed in the northern lights. The phase lasted a little over 10 minutes. After that, there was more and less dim activity in the sky (chorus waves and sometimes brightened, but no real proper storm came) until the clouds covered the northern sky again just before two at night.
Added a picture of the dunes. Based on the pictures, they appeared at 10:08 p.m. and disappeared again at 10:15 p.m.

Kiitos, Eero! Pakko sanoa, että oli kyllä hienoa katsottavaakin, vaikka kuu himmensikin loistetta. Seuraavan kerran voisi ottaa uudelleen ilman kuuta :D
