Visibility III / V

Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

With the northern lights of the previous night in mind, I watched if repos appeared tonight as well. At first, nothing to mention was reflected in the values, but in the evening eight countries bz dropped briskly. I decided to head towards Pöytya.

I got to the place. I set off to head towards the swamp, but soon I noticed I had taken the wrong direction. I ran back to the car and at the same time noticed that the stand was still in the car. Blessing in disguise.

When I got into the car, I noted the situation. The pedestal is at home, 40 miles away. There is nothing that can be done.

I finally got to the swamp. I threw in the sinking snow looking for a suitable representation. Sweat came. I finally found a suitable place. I arranged the camera on top of the camera backpack, and that was quite an emergency. But the northern lights did not brighten. I continued watching. Vilu began to come. After watching a couple of hours of dilute greenery, I decided to change the subject. The Moon and the Orion shone in the west. That's it.

Get shimmering wonderfully in the moonlight. It was as if the stars had descended from the sky to their feet. I photographed the beautiful view for half an hour until it started to get tired. I decided to go home.

On the drive, I peeked north, where the northern lights blazed. Keep your jacket. I drove home and took a shower to the lands of my dreams,
