Since moving up here, there have been several nights with (strong) northern lights… Sadly, anytime it happened, there were also clouds…
My first time I saw a faint shimmer behind the clouds, I was able to get some really blurry shots.
More recently, the northern lights showed again and I could see again nothing but a faint shimmer. But that didn’t keep me from trying to take some pictures. On the pictures the light looks really green and bright, in reality, I wasn’t able to make out a color and it was by far not as bright as in the long exposure pictures.
At the end of March there is a forecast for some more northern lights, and I am hoping for clear skies to finally see them clearly!
