Finally we could see some auroras again, and they were extremely active for a very short period, with fast moving curtains of green, blue and red.

I believed that the aurora outbreak of October 21th was over but suddenly the graph on the magnetometer on Andøya went straight up again. The display was subtle and stable with lines going from horizon to horizon. Found that the Aviation museum with its lines was a perfect match for the pictures of the aurora.
