Big bang

It was huge, seriously. A wave of solar wind entered Earths atmosphere yesterday (April 14th, 2016). During the last hour, the skies exploded in an aurora firework.

A nasty flu kept me home but it couldn’t keep me from looking outside a couple of times. I was kind of late when the big show started but I caught a good piece of it. The first photos are taken with a 14mm wide-angle lens and you can soon see it only caught a part of what was going on up there. I was ready to try my fisheye lens to capture most of the sky and I got this huge corona!

My adrenaline is going high seeing these displays and writing now about it it brings those feelings back. Better stop and let you enjoy the photos🙂
