She was slow in the beginning of the night, but quite bright for a while. Then we continue to the next fjord with the lovely Lyngen Alps in front as a great setting (much better if the moon has lit then up).

We got a couple of nice show during this cold evening at the fjord, but the best show we got at 1.30 am on our way back to the city, when we stopped in a valley after all another guides has left the area and I could give my guests what I sell; silence...
