Summary: The auroras of Nov. 2008 were caused mainly by two solar wind streams hitting Earth, one on Nov. 7th and another on Nov. 24th. Each caused mild but beautiful auroras around the Arctic Circle. See also October 2008.

This movie is made from 7 pictures of beautifully moving and colorful northern lights. We enjoyed this heavenly feast thanks to the coronal hole CH349.

The dancing lights have returned for a second night in the row. A photography friend of mine and I headed out behind our house in hopes of capturing the lights on pixel- beautiful show tonight despite the -30 degree Celsius temperatures.

The light you see in the middle is the Imagine Peace Light donated last year by Yoko Ono, and to the left you can see the Northern Lights.

At first we didn't know if we would get above fog which had covered city, but at the southern peak we have finally found first stars. Just a minute later firs auroras occurred. These auroras were really magical for us, because in the Alps (we come from Slovenia) such a celestial show is very rare. It was unforgettable!
