A little planet of the night

When waiting for auroras there is often time to try out some new things and here is one of them from a few nights back. This photo is a result of a 360-panorama all around me, processed with a computer program.

citylights, trees, aurora, dawn

I was standing in a field with some trees around me and the sky was pretty much filled with thin clouds. On the left side you can see how city lights from far away illuminated the cloud cover. On the right side are auroras (green) and the light of dawn (light blue). At this time of the year, the sun doesn’t go far below the horizon, so the nights are not completely dark anymore. To give make this more clear, this photo series was captured between 1.45-1.50am in the middle of the night.

Here is also the panorama from which this little planet was done. Make sure you click on the images to see them in bigger size!
