Active aurora band - 28.8.2015 at 23.15 - 29.8.2015 at 00.00 Pälkäne Observation number 41637

Visibility III / V

Not visible

I went to the gate to see if there were any northern lights in the northern sky. Well, nothing was visible. After about five minutes, I looked back at the sky, and by then I was already seeing a green belt of northern lights. The belt was sometimes whole, sometimes divided into a few pieces. There was wrinkling, little rays. Sometimes dimmer, sometimes brighter spots. Started around 23.15 and 00.00 no longer seemed to be a reason to stand at the gate. The picture is bad, but I get some idea of what I see.
