A successful hunt

Where we had only seen Lady Aurora twice during our previous two trips to Iceland and Norway (once only visible with the camera, the second time through the clouds), now we got lucky the first five nights of our stay! Sometimes gorgeous, sometimes barely visible, but every single night we did see something green in the skies. We were fortunate with the weather. It was freezing, -10ºC, but we had clear skies the first five nights of our trip. I’ve now seen it several times, in Sweden, Greenland, Iceland and Norway, but no matter how often you see it, it is always amazing.

One night we were fortunate enough to see it dance throughout the skies. The movement and different colours were bright enough to see with the naked eye. An exceptional moment.

The last two evenings were overcast, so no chance of seeing any lights.
