We are between the previous and next arrivals of stronger solar wind coming from coronal holes. However, this does not mean that no Auroras are visible in the northernmost parts of Finnish Lapland!

In the past 6 years that I have been chasing Auroras there, it happened only once that on a clear night, no Aurora whatsoever appeared. Tonight was not that night!

At the beginning of the night, the Milky Way actually appeared brighter than the Aurora.

Then Aurora remained weak for most of the time, but there were a few nice outbursts displaying beautiful curtains and very contrasted vertical stripes. The camera revealed some pale red on top of the green.

Well worth staying outside with -31°C (-24°F)!
