After some initial Auroral ‘sparks’, something happened even I had never seen before. The whole sky turned green! And not only green, but also red and pink. All different colours that can be visible in the northern lights were there. We had no idea where to look, as it was spectacular all around us.
The movement of the lights was clearly visible with the naked eye, which is not always the case and arches were shooting from one horizon to the other. Where Ypie and I were busy trying to capture it all, was Leon just laying on his back enjoying the spectacle (which might have been the better option). At one point there was even a corona over our head (no, not the virus…).
This spectacle lasted for less as 30 minutes, but left us breathless for quite a bit longer. When it all died down a bit, we headed back inside to warm up and have a look at our pictures to see what had actually happened there.
Later that night, the activity went up again, so we packed our stuff again and headed back to the place we had chosen near the river. It was by far not as spectacular as the first show, but that was hardly to be expected. But still, we had some nice colours and curtains for quite some time. Not a bad first real experience for my friends 😀
