A very powerful outburst of Northern Lights, the ground turned green! It lasted for a few minutes only.

With four members of the Dutch Philippus Lansbergen public observatory we are visiting the Lofoten Islands (Norway). We are at the Polarlightcenter at Straumnes, situated right under the auroral oval. Almost every clear night you can observe auroral light here, even when the sun is in it's minimum. During one of my photographic captures I was lucky to catch a pair of Iridium flares in the auroral oval.

Tonight, we went on the river to take some pictures of the northern lights. They were fantastic with a lot of colors.

It was a short burst of Aurora play but had a great intensity. Managed to get two grabshots out the porch doorway.
