Quiet aurora arc - 28.8.2015 at 23.15 Espoo Observation number 41660

Visibility II / V

Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

At 23.15-00.00 we got to watch the beautiful northern lights. For a while at the beginning of the observation period, the northern lights were really bright. We did another trip on 01-02, with much leaner results. That's when the northern lights, which could be seen with just eyes, were visible. However, the strong Kalevala fires on the Estonian coast stimulated my mind, and sometimes he did not know whether to look south or north.
