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.

What a fantastic couple of nights. This last Solar Storm was very active, even at the 53 lat. I'm glad it's subsiding thought. I need sleep! Shot with a Canon 5D2 and a EF 16-35mm f2.8 and the Sigma 14mm f2.8. 8-30 second exposures with ISO's from 1250-1600.

It`s wonderful to see aurora-pictures starting to appear from the southern hemisphere. The last week has been a great way to end the aurora season in the north and a great way to start it in the south. I can`t wait until the next season, so maybe I must follow the road that leads to the southern hemisphere... But it looks like there are still some nice evenings left also in the north Nikon D3, Nikkor 20mm f/2,8
