We arrived and set up and I was delighted to see that even though the sky wasn’t completely dark, the aurora was already visible!
What a spectacular show. The colour wasn’t great to the naked eye on this night, but the display was still stunning. Even my jaded teenager was in awe and momentarily forgot the Rules of Being a Jaded Teenager and admitted that he was really glad he came out!
WHOA. I know. Don’t tell his friends though - have to protect the street cred’, you know.
It was truly amazing. They were everywhere. The entire sky was alive!
There was a period where the sky was pulsing with the effects of the charged particles of the solar wind. It was incredible. I mean, you’re seeing “wind”.
