Visibility III / V
Surprise social repo eating.
The intention was to deviate to Pulkkilanharju to train rusty astronomy skills. A gentle repo arch and co-photographer on the beach waited above Päijänne to get there.
With the Northern Lights, the evening’s shooting plans from deep space became more landscape-focused.
The performance was mostly a dim greenish arc, but from time to time (at ~ 23.00->, ~ 01.45->, ~ 02.50->) more brightness and dance appeared over the horizon.
Interestingly, as the morning approached, it seemed that even the dim northern lights could be found in a lot of different shades that a sensitive camera could record. Fluttering spots and other rapid forms were also visible.
The performance continued for a long time, as the piles of five more countries glowed green in the north, even though the twilight already painted the environment blue.
The fact that there was another observer on site for the first few hours brought a nice variation to the evening. Mostly nocturnal sessions when you go in your own conditions, tuning in shooting shots and staring at the sky. This time I got to chat other than on the soundtrack of the camera. To share the experience.
