A very special night out for chasing the Northern lights with my two guests from Costa Rica and guide colleague, Marcus.

What really happen on the sky this night..?

Tonight NASA's AZURE mission successfully launched 2 sounding rockets back-to-back from the Andøya Space Center in Norway. They released clouds of glowing tracers into the upper atmosphere (the background green is the real aurora though) to study and track the flow of neutral and charged particles in the ionosphere. Each dot is at a different altitude and notice they migrate at a different speed and direction!

My 13. Aurora season is over, little earlier than first planned cause lack of bookings...

I really hope more Aurora travelers like to explore the most beautiful time of the Aurora season, by visiting at the beginning (September) and at the end (mid-March - mid-April) of the Aurora season. We call the period for Equinox Aurora - when the activity is more colorful and more powerful!
