There where some fine Auroras tonight. Quickly movement and bright lights, really difficult to catch with my camera, had to go down to iso 800 and shutter speed 2sec, and still some of the pics became overexposed.. Took the images at Ringvassøya, just outside the city of Tromsø, located in northern Norway.

Photo details: Nikon D90 and a 50mm f/1.8 at iso 800-1000, shutter 2 - 3 sec and a 16-85mm lens at 16mm and iso 1600, f/3.5 and 20sec. (last 2 pics)

After waiting for some hours these exposures shows some of the glory we are waiting for after this long period in the lowest low of all solar activity curves.
