  Summary: March 2011 began with a fantastic display of Northern Lights, continuing a recent trend of intensifying geomagnetic activity. The show was sparked by a solar wind stream hitting Earth's magnetic field. See also February 2011.

Another great night in Abisko! I was very happy to see an aurora watch posted on tonight just before heading to work. As I was eating dinner a friend of mine called me and told me to stop whatever I was doing, grab my camera and RUN outside. Needless to say I was not disappointed when I saw what was waiting for me outside!! The auroras just keep getting better. I cant wait to see what the last few weeks of this great season have to offer!! Shot with a Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16 2.8, and 1 to 3 second exposures (this was a BRIGHT aurora!).

Five nights in a row of moderate to active auroras near Yellowknife, Canada. Mostly green, but at times fast moving, and with several overhead coronas. All photos on Nikon D3 with 28mm f1.4 lens ISO 1000

The evening started with some colouring, not too exciting. However, later on the flames were for a moment so intens that the picture of that moment was totally overexposed! After that dancing lights with all kind of appearances like curtains, screws, omegas, rays; only the corona was missing. It was an evening not too forget! Fujifilm Finepix S100FS, f2.8, ISO 400, 13-30 sec.
