Details:
Last night a bright fireball lit up the sky of Inari in Lapland, just 2 days after a first one appeared at the same place. There was no shock wave this time, but it really lit up the horizon. I only caught it from the corner of my eye, but luckily I was shooting an Aurora timelapse, and it got just in the bottom left corner of the frame.

As I believe it is not possible to include a gif file in this gallery, I uploaded it on my website:

At the same time, the solar wind seemed to have arrived early, and some bright and fast Aurora were dancing high in the sky.

A very successful night in the Arctic!
