Another great night in Abisko! I was very happy to see an aurora watch posted on spaceweather.com tonight just before heading to work. As I was eating dinner a friend of mine called me and told me to stop whatever I was doing, grab my camera and RUN outside. Needless to say I was not disappointed when I saw what was waiting for me outside!! The auroras just keep getting better. I cant wait to see what the last few weeks of this great season have to offer!! Shot with a Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16 2.8, and 1 to 3 second exposures (this was a BRIGHT aurora!).
