Auroras tour 12.09.2018

Another evening of heavy rain and thick cloud, however, the MET weather forecasted for better skies later on in the evening. As we drove closer to base camp it became obvious that meteorological weather was improving. On our arrival at base camp, the Auroras were faintly visual to the naked eye and gave us a dazzling hint of what was to come. With space weather predicted below average over the past days, yet we know that planet earth does not like to take a second hit from another fast wind so soon. This phenomenon can sometimes create the Aurora’s to drift down to mid-latitudes. Even though the Auroras were not as bright the Northern lights sure could be seen overhead and as far south as 65 degrees.
