Quiet aurora arc - 26.1.2023 at 19.00 - 26.1.2023 at 21.30 Pietarsaari Observation number 111623

Visibility II / V

The last chance of the winter vacation to describe the northern lights and the comet. After tonight, the moon will start to illuminate too much and with a very high probability the clouds will spoil everything. A nice clear sky, but a freezing wind blowing from the north.

I was waiting for the northern lights, but they remained very faint. The moon actually ate the blade from all the change in the arc. Around 8:45 p.m., a little bit of life could be seen in the sky, but the arc remained low. Moving from right to left at the best time were surprisingly high purple pillars considering the shallowness of the arch, which barely caught the camera lens in the moonlight.
