This is it! The new aurora season is here, even six days earlier than last year. I went to a little marina near Oulu, Finland to catch some perseids and NLCs. Suddenly this weak green arc appeared behind the NLCs, hard to see. Then the aurora went towards east and lit up strongly for a few moments. I ran with the tripod and a big smile over the grass to get the boats into the shot. Im so thrilled to have seen auroras finally again after four months. Its like the first time all over again. Pure magic everytime.

This is taken around 1am with a Nikon D5 and 14-24mm lens.
