A friend and I were hunting the northern lights at the edge of the field when we noticed the lights of a long pole among the northern lights and stars, which looked like the stars around the pole. However, these moved clearly and at a constant speed in a straight line formation from us, the so-called downwards. The phenomenon lasted approx. 2 minutes until the aurora borealis decreased and at the same time the light disappeared from view. There were more than 10 star-like lights after counting from the picture.
(The picture is shaky when I took it from my arm, but the picture clearly shows the light in the middle of the picture. The lights were each their own little lights, moving forward at the same pace.)
