Already second time this season, never seen before since started working as Northern Lights guide on 2014, we are having some strange(r) green than usual on photos. Closest we have agreed with fellow tour operators, that this green vapour kind of smoke was caused last time by exhaust gases, when rocket was launched in Andenes, Norway. Only lasted about 20 seconds and then it was gone again. For more strange green, stay tuned for upcoming days, as there is good chance of incoming solar storm.

That formation is called a Picket Fence aurora.
