Solar storm on March 17, 2015

Exactly two years after a wondeful aurora night, I was lucky to witness another huge night on March 17, 2015. A long-time medium solar flare sparked the strongest geomagnetic storm since many years. Very colorful auroras not only to the skies of Northern countries. It reached far South and was observed even in the Alps. Here some photos I took near Haukipudas, Finland.

    • Cheers! Have been pondering on that Sony A7s for while now, so great footage with it. Maybe for next winter, this seasons last only 2-3 more weeks before the nights are too bright. Have a good one!

    Rarely do I reblog, Simply because I am not interested in duplicating, however, when I do, then because I am amazed or upset. In this case I am blown away by the images that Thomas Kast took of a recent solar stormin Finland.

    Northern Lights at their finest.
