We went into the woods to try to see it more clearly, but night clouds swept in in the most fantastic leopard skin pattern so no loss in any sort of way. It is a beautiful night.

Bloody weird.
Never seen the Northern Lights behave like that.

What sort of solar wind is that persistent and un-


Can't wait to see if it's still there tonight.
Will be 4th night in a row, if so.

Yes indeed. And here's an actual picture:


Auroras light the late summer skies

The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights danced across the skies above large parts of western and northern Finland on Tuesday night. As summer draws to a close and nights become darker, these colourful displays are becoming brighter and easier to observe.

In the north, sky-watchers reported varied patterns of green and blue.

According to the Finnish Meteorological Institute, its observation stations at Hankasalmi in the west and Sodankylä in Lapland registered strong magnetic disturbances between 9 PM and midnight on Tuesday night.

We're going to have another clear night here so hopefully we'll have more of this tonight. The sun is setting about now so we'll keep an eye out.
