The lights are back!

Earlier than usual, we experienced tonight the first Aurora after a couple of month midnight sun.

A KP2 solar storm was predicted, and we have been observing the sunspot for a couple of days… will it be dark enough already?

Yes, it was! Still a bit fainted, but anyway a beautiful display that occured between 12 and 1.30 am while we have been capturing in heavy wind conditions.

So this is the official start of the season 2017/18 – happy hunting everyone! We hope to see you in Iceland soon!
