Details:
It was a bracing night of an icy cold temperatures with a windchill of -27 and quite a strong breeze as we set out to the location for our lights over lapland tour last night.
My 10 guests had all had a pleasant show of aurora the previous evening, but on their second night we raised the bar with a truly beautiful display of aurora. As I watched the Bz index continue to stay in the negative for some time I knew that something would be coming that would likely mean bright aurora visible to the naked eye and sure enough at around 10pm the sky illuminated from a nice green arc to active and bright green auroras and tinges of red at times. The group stayed out for some time photographing the display, yet soon the cold took its toll and we warmed ourselves in the teepee, framed by the Arctic birch trees, with a glowing fire providing the most beautiful scene under a starry and green sky.
