Details:
Looking at the solar wind data, and at the amazing Auroras in the sky, I think that the solar wind from the coronal hole arrived a bit earlier than anticipated.

Our night started very quietly with just a weak Aurora band that could barely compete against the very bright moon. My guests who were here in the Arctic for the first time were really not impressed!

However, around 10 PM local time, the band grew higher, thicker and brighter.

Then it did not take long before the entire sky exploded in green, with fast moving Auroras, full of needles and even a few purple fringes! The moon could not do anything there to disturb the show. I heard several loud wows from my guests, and I knew the evening was a big success.

It feels so good to be back in Finnish Lapland, with such an amazing night under the Aurora!
