The 22th Oct: One of the "widest" activity I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot. It streched from the horizon in the north to the horizon in the south. A quite intense band south in the horizon is something we dont see often in the northern Norway(69,65'N). We spend the evening/night on an island with perfect view 180' all over. The orionids was still active too and we saw some very nice meteors trough the northen lights. Its an easy and plesent job to be a Northern Lights guide in this conditions.

This was a very sudden and stunning outburst of activity. Luckily I had my camera with me.
