Visibility V / V
I drove to Luosto in the early evening to describe and wait for the X9 flare CME predicted to arrive. Location old familiar Orresokka. The first northern lights were already visible at 10.30pm, albeit dim due to the full moon. From time to time, however, they intensified until they dimmed again, and again it occurred to me that here they were again.
Little by little the clock was moving towards midnight and the dim arc seemed to rise and rise and eventually move south of the zenith until at 1 o'clock I decided to leave.
At 1.30 I still stopped at the jagged edge after the Luosto holiday and watched when the ribbon in the southern sky was relatively clear, however, I had seen a similar effect in the northern lights on February 16, 2016 (even then it was a full moon). I don’t know if anyone reads this stuff, but nonetheless, I continued on my way home.
Until then, after about half an hour of driving, the sky actually flashed, the car on the side of the road and after taking a couple of pictures, I found that I couldn’t take pictures of these at this location this time, so I caught my lens and shot a video. The show lasted about ten minutes, and the journey continued.
And again I had to stop closer to Rovaniemi, where there were better conditions for filming. This show lasted again for about 10 minutes, after which the sky went so far into the cloud that now finally towards home.
