Active aurora band - 28.3.2017 at 22.10 Inari Partakko Observation number 62990

Visibility III / V


Here, I look at photos of various nature events in the sky and on the ground from my trip to Lapland, Inari, in front of a home computer. The northern lights blazed on several evenings, but a strong and gusty wind prevented the descriptions of the best (27-28 March) night area (in exchange, it was just nice to watch them from the window while enjoying a warm drink). On the early evening of March 28, the wind was soer that I was able to record the views of the sky for a while. Active northern belts warped when viewed from here on all sides of the sky. The first photo was taken from the scene to the southwest. Another at the same time to the northeast - the third to the northwest. Seen from southern Finland, the same warps were probably seen as a more cohesive belt. Compared to my previous experiences in the same place, the warps were really active - even restlessly gusts like a rising wind.

Kuvauksesi on Lapin mainos parhaasta päästä!

Näin on. Kyllä revontulien esilletulo ja katseleminen säväyttää aina. Ja olipa itse repolainenkin liikkeellä illan hämyssä häntäänsä hangella laahaten ja kiimarääkäisyjä päästellen - sopi hyvin lisävärityksenä tunnelmaan!

Johan sieppasit hienot kuvat - todistettavasti vaikeissa olosuhteissa...
