Northern lights

Yesterday I was going out for a short walk, mostly to activate my lungs a little after this intense cold that has been hanging around for a week. The plans quickly changed since I only took two steps on the road before I saw some northern lights in the sky! And by then it wasnt even dark.

Later at night it looked like this. It was mostly green and white, I barely saw any other colours.


It just kept on going ALL night, but at around 1 am I had to go inside.

I check the aurora forecast almost everyday, except – of course – yesterday! So I was completely unprepared for the northern lights this time. However I checked the forecast this morning and then it looked like this:

And the green light rarely has gone below the Sweden text in the map. The site I use is called Aurora Forecast, and sometimes I check this one from Alaska.

It looks pretty good for tonight aswell, and although it has been cloudy today it is clearing up now. THe kp för right now is 5 which also is pretty high, so  maybe I can get some more practice of catching this fairytale skies that everyone should see at least once in life. It truly is …



Unfortunately I’ve gotten sick this week so not much happening here right now. Last morning I woke up really early and one of the best things about having a window just next to the bed is being able to watch the sunrise without even lifting the blanket. The bad thing is seeing another beautiful day waking up that I won’t be enjoying …



I’ve really started experimenting with shooting time lapse and really enjoy it! Here is the very first one I’ve made. I don’t know why my Safari browser won’t adjust the size in the small screen, so if it looks weird look at it in full screen mode.
