Watching the northern lights before it’s dark is one of the most amazing experiences. The cobalt blue sky is already striking. The emerald and mint colors streaking across the sky will take your breath away. This display was from way back in 2012. I remember when this started I could barely even see any stars yet, but the sky was shimmering. It took some time to convince myself I was seeing the aurora, but it became obvious after the sky darkened a bit more. I’ve attached a few more photos below.
As a not totally unrelated side-note, I’m posting lots of old photos because I’m re-organizing the layout on my photography website. I keep finding photos that I never thought twice about at the time, but absolutely love and want prints of now. Turns out I take a lot of photos. Nearly 3 terabytes worth. Which reminds me, it’s time for a back-up. I’ll post when this update is done!
