Active aurora band - 16.3.2012 at 22.37 Ikaalinen, Sisöttö Observation number 2976

Visibility III / V

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

In the evening after nine, a very dim belt of northern lights began to appear, which brightened into active pulsating northern lights in the northern sky. Mist began to form on the ground, and the lens of this was damp from this, which hampered the description. There were no red poles at the Nurmijärvi measuring point, but still the northern lights were visible.
