All-sky aurora - 2.3.2021 at 20.58 - 2.3.2021 at 22.03 Enontekiö, Hetta Observation number 96430

Visibility V / V

Sakari Ekko, Turun Ursa

After a long journey, fortunately I still had to go to Paljasselä to photograph the stars, because the evening was clear and the Moon did not rise until after ten. The dim northern lights interfered with star photography, as can be seen from the circular fisheye eye view, so I was already packing the cameras away when the sky started to flare. There was a hurry in it, and the beautiful and bright narrow curtain rising from the west at the beginning went unreported. The fires spread across the sky, and even the full-screen fisheye felt too narrow — in a hurry, the circular fisheye stayed in the car ... Rarely have I seen such bright northern lights, and their breadth added green light to the surface of the hang.

Onnittelut. Ovat huikeita. Voin vain kuvitella sitä säätämisen ja kiireen määrää kun piti valita mitä ja miten kuvaa.
