After the first notification of the arrival of the faster solar wind around 8 AM local time here in the north of Finnish Lapland, you can imagine how big my disappointment was. However, I remained hopeful that the storm would last at least another 10 hours, and by 6 PM, when the sky was already dark enough, I was in position to wait for the Auroras.

I did not have to wait long!

I enjoyed a first long and bright outburst at one of my favorite spots near open water (there are rapids a few hundred meters downstream from this river, so the water almost never freezes there).

Then I knew of another place where I would love to take Aurora pictures, so I just drove there. Those frost covered birch trees made for an exceptional foreground for the Aurora!

Around 11 PM local time, the activity suddenly decreased, leaving the sky glow green but without any major outbursts anymore (that I know of... after spending 5 hours outside with -21C/-6F, I had to eventually give up!)

To summarize: another really exciting and successful night in the Arctic!
