Visibility IV / V
The solar wind data predicted strong northern lights with CME reaching Earth, so I went to the pick-up site right at dusk. It was already happening in the sky when I tuned the camera to the tripod at 8 pm. The clouds and the moon slightly dimmed the repos, but on the other hand they add a nice addition to the pictures. At 9pm the repos faded and I went home, but I followed the curves and returned to shore at midnight as the bz curve plunged into red again.
This time, the wild fireworks of power came full from the sky, so that the image of the fisheye lens didn't fit everyone. It was green, purple and red. The so-called "disco lights". By the way, the repos would probably have been very bright, when they could be seen so well, even though the Moon was roaring, there were clouds in places and fog was floating on the surface of the ice. An amazing experience!
As a main picture, I put a picture I took at 01:49 with a thick bunch of purple-tailed rays. Other images are in chronological order:
20:07 wavy clouds as dark horizontal stripes in front of the repo belt,
00:54 green-purple rays / belt clips,
01:16 belt across the zenith,
02:07 throbbing Korona.
