Active aurora band - 24.10.2020 at 21.10 - 24.10.2020 at 21.15 Ylläsjärvi Observation number 94499

Visibility Unclassified

Yrjö Benson, Ursa (Helsinki)

Large, bright and multi-colored northern lights. There is a record amount of pink. The eye saw the same as the camera. "Normal" Northern Lights, a pale light green shore, can be seen below the pink. A few other northern lights in different places in northern Finland also photographed this fire and consider its pink intensity unseen before. Anyway, in October 2020, there have been more multicolored northern lights than usual, especially pink and other shades of red. Why is this? The white cloud at the bottom left is the snow coming from the snow thrower.
