Details:
What is going on in the night sky over the Easter Island in the Southern Pacific ?! No, this is not fire :) We are witnessing quite strong red airglow in the upper atmosphere. Intensity of airglow varies and sometimes it can be more prominent, especially when we use digital cameras to capture the phenomenon. I took this image at Anakena beach, located in the Northern part of the island. Besides the palm trees on the foreground you can also see the lights of a yacht which was anchored not far from the coast. I hope youll enjoy the view !
