Visibility IV / V
In the middle of the night, full of hope, I looked out and couldn't believe my eyes: finally, after many cloudy weeks, decent northern lights! It was freezing around 16 and the car wasn't even ready to go. But I still managed to take a hundred pictures while walking around with my neck in a keno, so there were indeed difficulties in choosing as an appendix to this observation. Cooperation with the camera is still not going according to my wishes, so I unfortunately missed some situations. At first I only saw green, and then at some point, looking through the camera, a faint red ray stood out, and then even the eyes started to distinguish colors in some places. All the time, the repos weren't strongly distinguishable, but the camera did distinguish colored ones even in weak places, even the corona. I went to sleep happy after such a hard day.
