Details:
Always ominous for Northern Lights, this time full moon was even worse than usual - pedigree supermoon was about 14% bigger and 1/3 brighter than usual. As I went out to guide a Northern Lights tour, I felt like I accidentally went on a daytour. But once again, Auroras prove, no matter what - they are stonger than moon.

you guys seem to be directly under lights as opposed to seeing them towards the horizon. Have you tried taking a video of the lights and try to capture the counter rotating cylinders of the Birkeland current that is creating the aurora? Your Norwegian ancestor Kristian Birkeland uncovered the fact that the electric current from the sun flowing through earths magnetic field causes the aurora. The confirmation of the Birkeland current is the counter rotating cylinders it creates. Just like the videos of the Saturnian and Jovian auroras
