The weather forecast said full storm, but when its windy the clouds are moving which gives gaps in the clouds.
So, just before the great show begin I had a huge hole of clear sky over my house, here at Ringvassøya island, 40 km north of Tromsø city, Northern Norway.
 
It was windy out there on my beach so I had to secure my tripod since it was a risk it should blow away...
Its nice to live at a place where there's no light pollution and where I can step out on my doorsteps for view lady Auroras dance...
