What a night!! 12 hours with Northern Lights on the sky... from 5 pm to 5 am..;)
After been tired of taking Aurora pics from my beach and doorsteps I decided to drive to the magic island of Senja since it was forecasted a great show, and we got what we went for...
Totally we stopped at six different locations and got the best show at two of the highlights of Senja; first at Bergsbotn viewing platform 10 pm, and then at Senjahopen 1 am, across the fjord for the famous mountains Segla and Hesten.

I went out at 4.30 pm with the garbage and saw the south sky was filled with Aurora, so it was only one thing to do; Dress me up warm and grab my camera... at the same time I warned my friends in the south and also the Aurora UK FB page, with this message; "GO OUT and watch the north sky!"

I was out only from 5 to 10 pm and felt I had got enough pictures (over 300) of the Northern lights on the south sky which was my goal this night... later and after midnight probably the best show was coming with great Coronas too, and it was probably a 10/10 Aurora show. The activity begun already at 2.30 pm and didn`t ended before 4 am in the morning...
