Summary: Solar activity continues to increase after a two-year solar minimum that ranks among the century's deepest. The return of sunspots and a resurgent solar wind is good news for aurora watchers, who are seeing some of the best displays since ~2006. See also March. 2010.

Nikon D40, ISO400, F3.5, 25-30 s. The density of solar wind is very low so probably that's why the aurora looked like a milk or fog. But the horses didn't worry about it...

Wow, I think I´m in heaven...well almost, I´m in Härjedalen Sweden with a lovely landscape, great nightsky and Aurora Borealis! Last night I enjoyed the Northern Lights from dusk to dawn, such a great display! And I even saw the setting of Venus and Mercury together with the Aurora Borealis....a sight to remember. Canon 550D and 15mm, 20mm, 50mm objective.
