Aurora pictures 09.09.15

A couple of nights ago, a geomagnetic storm sparked very bright and dynamic aurora over Sodankylä, which lasted for most of the night. Here are a couple of pictures taken from behind the local airport.

At first, it was a bit cloudy, but soon enough the sky became perfectly clear and it was possible to fully enjoy the live show. It went really crazy around 01:00 LT, with very bright pinkish displays below the green arcs, pulsating aurora and dancing structures.
