Koko taivaan revontulet - 17.3.2013 at 21.10 Kuopio Observation number 11841

Visibility V / V


After initial camera flares and panic, these eventually became the best northern lights of my life. The duration was long enough to be enjoyed properly. Unfortunately, there was another camera while traveling so I had to nut between the timel kid and the stills. I still got those pictures significantly more and better than in previous sessions.

For myself, a new phenomenon (or at least I don’t remember that strong) was the continuous “pulses” of less than half a second that swept across the sky. A truly confusing experience, just as if someone had been really quick to rotate a giant floodlight at the end of the yard. I think those pulses only came a little later, and not at the time of the strongest peak. Yes, it increased my photography enthusiasm so much that I have to browse the prices of timelapse dolly and the like again online.

Todella upeita kuvia! Varmasti innostaa kehittämään taivaiden kuvausta :) Lepatusta havaitsin itsekin samalla tavalla, eli ei vahvimman näytelmän aikaan, vaan joskus klo 21 aikoihin. Lisätietoja kannattaa merkkailla havaintoihin myös (värejä yms).
