Moonlight Aurora by SindreAHN Moonlight Aurora by SindreAHN
Moonlight Aurora !

3/3-2012

Norway, Bodø, close to the water; "Skarrvatnet" at the city`s northern side.

It was forcasted some activity but the KP was low and minimum, at 1 and 2 only.
But the earth`s IMF, ( Interplanetary Magnetic Field) Was tipping south, making it easy for solar winds to enter within the weak spots of the magnetic field.

And so the Northern Lights was above us :D

Me and my friend Gaute went out around 21:15PM to look for the light !
The Moon was half, around 65 % so we had some bright light ! And the pictures would get a blue background because of this, when you need to expose the Northern Lights we knew.

At our first checkpoint where you could see north / west from a parking spot at Løpsmarka we saw our frst glimpse of auroras, two lines crossing the sky above the Landegode Island.

We drove to the shore line at "Løp" where we got our first pictures at 21:36PM of two lines sparkling above Landegode with some pulsating dancing ;) It wasn`t active like vibrant, but quite massive as it moved around up there ! :D

As the activity was increasing we went further north to our spot between Mjelle and Festvåg, close to the Mjelle Mountains range. To our spot on top og a hill close to Skarrvatnet water.

This picture was shot at 22:19PM with
400 ISO, F3,2 and 30seconds with E/V +2.0.

The show was over at 23:16PM so we headed home ;)
