During the day I had my eye on spaceweather aurora forecast and hoped for clear skies. Went out about 9pm to nearby lake. At the beginning there were not really much, but after an hour the whole sky exploded in beautiful fireworks! I was so amazed at times that I forgot to press the shutter :) Show lasted about an hour and I had goosebumps during the most active display. I could easily walk around the ice in green light from the sky. It was bright! Simply beautiful!
