All-sky aurora

15.1.2022 at 00.00 - 01.00 - Suomussalmi (V)
Ari Tauriainen

The beginning of the situation was that a calm arc of northern lights was in the southern sky, below Orion. Which I think is really rare here at the height of Suomussalmi. After a while, the sky was filled with northern lights, really bright and fast-moving northern lights. Despite the bright moonlight, the northern lights were really visible to the naked eye. To the east, a red vertical beam appeared in the sky amid the northern lights, which remained in place for several minutes up to ten minutes.
