Summary: On Feb. 4th and 5th, the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) near Earth tilted south, opening a crack in Earth's magnetosphere. Solar wind poured in and fueled auroras over Scandinavia and Russia. See also January 2009.

Bright auroras tonight in Northern Norway and it almost felt like the bright half Moon was almost outshined for a little while. It made a very nice couple in the sky! Took this shot around midnight local time through my window.
