Visibility V / V
During the day, news coverage and metrics came closely, but terribly there was no belief in the continuation of the geomagnetic storm until the evening.
However, as the evening darkened, some subtle shades of zenith began to appear in the celestial cameras, briskly before darkness arrived. A glance from the window to the south set the adrenaline moving; crown bangs. Didn’t help but in a hurry to put the rigs in a pile and head out.
Lamping up for the car was originally awkward as the gaze kept getting up. As there were no guarantees about the duration of the storm, I headed to the nearest place with a wider view at the foot of the Mustakallionmäki water tower.
The performance above was great.
I quickly took a few hand shots before tuning the tripod. Then add slightly more detailed images with the tripod. Video. Spherical panorama. Everything had to be tried while there was still enough movement.
I arrived at eight countries and less than an hour later the situation was already slowing down. A quick call to my own provincial newspaper revealed the need for images in the delivery, which was followed by a quick move home to the machine and a fierce selection and processing of images for just over an hour. The groove was worthwhile and the picture of the evening's northern lights ended up in the next day's magazine.
So this observation report is only in the early evening. Another report of the night’s events is likely to be slammed during Thursday as long as the rest of the pictures have been gone through.
