Half-sky auroras - 23.3.2023 at 23.32 - 23.3.2023 at 23.40 Inari Observation number 113766

Visibility IV / V

We were filming the northern lights in Inari on 23.3. at 22-24. The magnetic activity was very high and almost all the time we saw the northern lights very widely. At 23:30 on land, the fires were concentrated in the southern sky. A very red active aurora center was formed there, which gradually expanded from the low forest border to cover more than half the sky. The different shades of red lasted a long time and were visible even with the naked eye. Northern lights have been photographed here in the north often, but this phenomenon was exceptional and very beautiful.

Aivan upeat ovat värit. Onko tämä kuva mahdollista julkaista yhden pelin taustakuvana? Nimesi mainittaisiin siinä.
