The sky was clear. It wasn't late... so I started in the arctic toundra to take some pictures. Finally, it was a very interesting night and once again, I had fun with the northern lights and the milky way.

Greetings once again from Baffin Island in Canada's High Arctic. The northern lights danced across our arctic skies once again. Stunning display with greens, purples and a splashes of red graced the evening sky.

Lazy weak auroras again. Hint , colour your aurora images with maglite. It`s just like a pen.

The northern lights were beautiful tonight... finally, the clouds let some place, after a month of waiting...
