Visibility II / V
At 9:18 p.m., while I was just driving to the viewing area, the northern lights formed an explosion to dance. The rays climbed up to the zenith, almost trying to try the corona as well. The most spectacular show lasted until 9:24 p.m., but at least until another 9:47 p.m., there were single post-show rays in the northern sky. Then there was the calm, just a crazy arcuate ole in the north.
At 23 p.m., the arc rose promisingly, but over the next hour and a half there were only small brightenings or activations, as if the arc had been tinkering with something small all the time, but a decent downturn just didn’t happen. At 0.40 you almost lost, and I was already expecting a decent show to be about to start. But at about 0.45 I noticed that the fires flickered and throbbed even in zenith. At first the flames seemed to strike more randomly, but then more organizedly, so that the dim arcs passed from north to south about every second. I remember seeing the same thing in Inari (https://www.taivaanvahti.fi/observations/show/82254). This continued until at least 1 o'clock, but by that time I had to go home. Hopefully that timelapse will get some idea of the current of the arcs.
