Last night, an aurora “storm” was expected, and the sky was clear. We decided to dress warm, pack a thermos with hot chocolate (essential!) and find a dark place to watch the show. Apparently the expected “storm” never arrived, but the aurora was out anyway. It was a beautiful night, with a crescent moon low on the horizon. The lights were moving slowly, but every now and then they showed a bit more activity and brightness.
There was very little wind but we were still glad with the shelter of the cabin/shed. It was more like a bus shelter without a real roof and no front wall, but that made it perfect for watching the show! We stayed for about an hour, by then our cold toes were telling us to go home 😉
