The days are very very short now, and when you have to work during the day, night photography is the way to go 😉 Last Thursday I went out with my photography workshop group, hoping for northern lights and the Geminid meteor shower. The evening started very promising, with northern lights dancing above Vengsøya…
We saw a few shooting stars, and decided to move to a different place to get a better view. But then the clouds rolled in… At first you could still see the stars through the thin clouds, but soon there was nothing left. Only to the west, some aurora was visible underneath the clouds… Oh well!
Last night, it was very clear and the aurora was active. We went to Skulsfjord, where we found some very dark skies and LOTS of stars. Even the Milky Way was visible 🙂 I didn’t see any meteors, though Paul did see one. I did hear whales though, breathing out nearby. Magic!
We caught the end of the show, as it soon calmed down and all that was left was a green band that didn’t move very much.
It was windy and cold, so after a while we gave up and drove home to warm up 🙂
