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 October 2010.

I did not expect auroras tonight, but suddenly there was a huge, powerful outburst that lasted for about an hour and a half.

Despite the freezing conditions, I decided to check the skies and noticed a glow to the north. There were no rays but the aurora was fairly bright with multiple arcs visible for a time before clouds encroached from the east.

Tonight,there was an explosion of auroral lights,although it was not expected. The instruments of the magnetometers showed suddenly big activity and we could see the most beautiful and moving northern lights by surprise!

After days with clear, cold weather without any North Light, last evening the North Light suddenly appeared. Just a few houndred yards from were I live I took these pictures. So despite the lightflow from the city, I managed to get nice shots.
