First auroras of the season / Sesongens første nordlys
After a long period with midnight sun and no stars, it felt almost unreal to see the auroras dancing across the light blue sky again. Only Jupiter, Venus and the brightest of the stars were visible against the light sky, so it must have been a fairly strong "impact" at around midnight local time.
At its strongest, both green and red/purple rays were dancing over my head while I was standing barefoot in the grass and watching the auroras - a somewhat unusual combination here in Tromsø!
The aurora-season has finally started!
