Aurora March 20, 2021
The night of March 20, 2021 was a good one for aurora viewing – a lot of things lined up just perfectly. Super large coronal hole on the sun blowing the solar wind at the earth? Check. Moonless night? Check. Cloud free skies – absolutely! And a well behaved aurora that started performing right on dusk 🙂
The evening started very promisingly as the aurora was visible even through my cameras live-view while the dusk twilight was still quite bright in the evening sky.
As it got darker the aurora put on a great little show, with lines of auroral activity clearly visible to the eye.
It was a real joy to see an active aurora again, and I look forward to many more in the dark winter months ahead. With a little bit of luck they might even appear during one of my upcoming workshops 🙂
