spaceweather.com reader "Yann": This image was
captured from the automated all sky camera at the Swedish
Institute of Space Physics (IRF) in Kiruna, Sweden. It could
get forgotten in the huge
archive they store automatically every minute. But this
one is too special to go unpublished--a real ghostly Aurora!
Summit Camp, Greenland Dec. 11, 2007
So bright the snow around us glowed a bright green. We saw white, greens, reds, and purple auroras. I work on the Greenland Ice Cap at 10,660 ft elevation at a research station for the winter darkness. We see a lot of auroras, these were more spectacular than most. This was my first attempt at aurora photography, I took 7 pictures, 3 came out awesome.
