Visibility III / V
Finally the opening of the northern lights season for this year as well!
A promising repo forecast made me and my filmmaker Sam leave for Perch, although the frost of a fair selection of dogs was a bit of a guess. for the frost resistance of the equipment.
When we got there, a clear but dim arc was visible, from which a few individual rays rose. However, the situation calmed down quickly and after an hour of observation we considered leaving for home. However, the satellite data and related discussions on the Northern Lights Firefighters Facebook group gave indications of better and we decided to wait a little longer, the direction of the magnetic field was appropriately reversing.
And it was worth the wait, because after a while for about 10 minutes a very nice play appeared in the sky. The fog that appeared a little on Pielinen took the sharpness out of the pictures, but it was still beautiful.
The equipment also lasted well and after midnight we left for home.
