      Aurora Borealis

      September 20, 2021 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

      The spot for the night was specifically chosen to get the highest chances to see the Aurora Borealis. The forecast was not super bright but it hasn’t been very reliant the last days (we went to bed when it said bad chances only to see other travelers pics the next day…)
      So tonight I set up watch sometime half past nine - and only half a Find Penguins report in I look out to something I think could be it: Is that a greenish cloud spot?
      Yes! We grabbed our camping chairs, threw on as much clothes as we could and set off some way down the beach away from the town lights. We got there and green spots would light up, half a curve even.
      This time the picture is much more impressive then real life. I had to use my phone because my camera decided to run out just now 🤷🏼‍♀️
      But here it is.
      Aurora Borealis!
      (The second and third picture for reference what we really saw. I want to take a moment to thank Apple for engineering such a great night mode, and myself for taking up the $$ to invest in a higher range new phone with a better camera technology - this pic might be worth all of it.)

      We waited for another two and a half hours but it never came back more than a small spot - the clouds moved in and you could tell by greenish shimmer something was happening behind them, but couldn’t see anything.

      Sometimes the first impression is the best one I guess 😁
      Let’s see how the chances are the next days to catch a bit more of the green snake!
