Return of the Arctic Aurora

The midnight-sun period is a sore trial for amateur astronomers and northern lights photographers in teh high North, but after a long summer without stars (save one), the nights are finally starting to get darker. Last night I was watching the beautiful conjunction of Jupiter and the Moon when suddenly the first auroras of the season could be seen against the blue sky.

The skies are getting rapidly darker in the north now and with lots of activity on the Sun I believe this autumn and winter will indeed be a good season for northern lights. While waiting for the skies to get darker, why not read about the source of the northern lights - our explosive sun - in a new book release (see below)?
