Half-sky auroras - 17.3.2013 at 20.30 Mäntsälä Observation number 11745

Visibility IV / V

Teppo Laitinen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

Like many others, the description of the comet changed to northern lights.

The intention was just to go quickly to take a couple of pictures of the comet so not enough equipment was taken, let alone clothes. had to come to terms with what was.

The phenomenon itself was the coolest I remember seeing in southern Finland. Really colorful and at best filled the half sky. About 100 pictures had to be taken until the fingers were so iced that they could no longer use the camera (of course no gloves included)
