New photo-blog

Welcome to my northern lights photography blog!
On this blog I will try to share my passion for the night sky and astro-photography. By posting news, alerts and information about auroras and other astronomy-related topics, I hope to be able to inspire people to go out and enjoy the world at night.
A very peaceful, silent world, but also a world full of action is waiting to be discovered right above our heads, and I never stop being surprised over how much of our universe that can be seen and photographed from our own backyards with simple equipment.
Have you ever seen another galaxy or a nebula? Have you ever seen the rings of Saturn, the true Lord of the rings? Have you seen the sky suddenly filled with shooting stars or suddenly turn green and purple by auroras? Have you ever seen a comet in the sky? For all this, all you need is a pair of binoculars and our closest galaxy can even be seen with the naked eye.
On this blog I will update about coming events, such as bright comets, solar and lunar eclipses, meteor showers, how to find and view the different planets and other members of our solar system and much more. My main focus will be to inform about one of the most spectacular shows on Earth - the northern lights
I very much welcome any comments or suggestions how to improve this site, and as a photographer, I am always interested in comments on how I can improve my photography.

Carpe Noctem - Seize the Night !

As a photographer, I am mostly "nocturnal"
