Aurora 29th October 2003

Submitted by: Katja Gottschewski at Sun Nov 16 17:20:04 2003 UTC

Most times clouds are just annoying for aurora watchers, but in this case I think the picture would look a lot less interesting and dramatic without them.

Aurora 29th October 2003

Submitted by: Katja Gottschewski at Tue Nov 11 23:09:01 2003 UTC

This aurora almost looks like if it is upside-down, with red aurora at the bottom and green aurora at the top. An unusual sight. Of course it's not really one curtain, but two (at least). This was a strong aurora, but I believe it would have been even better further south. Here in Bodø, Northern Norway, the activity happened mostly in the Southern sky.

This was the start of an outburst of extremely fast and intense activity. From now on, things happened so quickly that it was hard to follow...

The aurora is spreading fast, and I am getting busy - so busy that I forgot to shorten the exposure time...

The aurora is really taking off now. There was even more pink visible directly than on the picture - it was moving so fast that the film didn't catch it. The 20mm-lens is still sufficient to catch the main activity, but not long anymore...

This is the first in a series of pictures from a marvellous aurora show here in Bodø, Northern Norway. The aurora was out early that night, and I went out to take some pictures of the aurora in the twilight. At this time, the aurora was still rather quiet.

I think it was at this point that I realized I should shorten the exposure time, but being in a hurry, I turned the wheel in the wrong direction...

Now (probably less than a minute since the beginning of the outburst) the aurora fills big parts of the sky, and I don't know anymore where to point the camera... And I still haven't cut down the exposure time, shame on me...

The "Lofot Cathedral" with aurora

Submitted by: Katja Gottschewski at Mon Nov 25 22:24:01 2002 UTC

Vågan church in Kabelvåg on the Lofoten islands, also called the "Lofot Cathedral", is the biggest tree church of Northern Norway. On Nov. 10, I played in a concert there. The night before I caught this picture. The aurora was not very cooperative - it was either rather faint or in the wrong place, but I wanted a picture with the church and the aurora, and I got it. ;-) Maybe I can get a better one next time I am in Kabelvåg. :-)
