Visibility III / V
I drove on Thursday 3.2. The weather forecast for Levi and the northern lights in the next few days was quite crushing - snow and clouds all the time. Thursday was still partially clear, so hurry up to the camera armpit and go!
I went to the top of Levi to shoot a reasonably powerful play and light pillars, and I took my girlfriend with me and then navigated to Pöntsö Bridge. Northern lights activity faded towards the end of the evening, but all the time the dim northern lights fluttered in the sky. After the corona play, my attention was drawn especially to the spectacular pink east-west arc, which was quite stationary and did not live to the beat of other northern lights. It took at least half an hour. To the east were also clear black streaks on the pink. Is it Steve? Or is there someone else with that name?
The image taken up shows a faint horizontal reddish stripe. The Pleiades in the lower right corner, and the red stars to its left, are probably Aldebara and Betelgeuse, so the arc is also east-west, unlike that northern lights belt that runs on it.
