If you are like me and Northern lights are ranking higher than a summer with nightless nights and warm temperatures, then I have good news: the long wait is over, the lights are dancing again in the skies here in Oulu, Finland!
There is something special about early autumn auroras. The sun doesn’t dip far under the horizon, so between sunset and sunrise there is an orange glow at the horizon, twilight. Lakes are not frozen and not covered by snow. So on a quiet night, wonderful reflections of Northern lights can be seen. The nights are mild around +8..12C, so dressing up is not an issue (yet).
During these first nights I was lucky to see many different shapes of auroras. I’ve spend many hours outdoors and now I’m happy to share some photos with you.
Did you see any auroras during the past days or weeks? Let me know about your experience!
