Active aurora band - 27.2.2012 at 19.45 Petäjävesi Observation number 2245

Visibility III / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I was on a ski holiday at home in Central Finland and the purpose was to describe the Garradd comet. While frosting the goods, I noticed a bright warp in the sky so the frosting got to stay and I went to shoot repos. The play was the best I've seen in a long time.
