Watching simultaneous the weather and the solar wind data last night, was quite a task. If the first one play only partial in my favor (the sky cleared only half of the clouds, the west and half of the northern horizon was covered in clouds while the other half or the northern horizon and the east were free of clouds – never seen before such a quite a bizarre symmetry) the aurora borealis played quite a quiet performance on the main stage with the highlight that was quite colorful with purple and pink pillars. We didn’t get the G1 geomagnetic disturbance as predicted yet, but just a Kp=3-4 was enough to spark these short lived colorful summer auroras. Photos were imported and edited in LR.
