"Skyene ble grønne av misunnelse.."

 

Some nights are more tricky than other... so, we went far east where the only chance for little clear sky could be found...

First we only had a thin high cloud layer and all sky was lit up of the strong Aurora... on the return, she suddenly begin to dance stronger and we could see some of the bands and curls... without a lot of patience we shouldn`t have success this night..;)

A tricky night with part clear sky over the city, and arriving clouds from all direction... headed first north towards Ringvassøya, but returned after 25 km and headed north of the city on the mainland... found a spot with clear sky above and got the first spikes across... then a lot of waiting (patience is king), and then we got a short show with little dancing... more was on the way, but then all sky got covered again...

My first plan was to head south of Tromsø for meet the forecasted clear sky, but when we came 45 km away we met heavy fog, so that`s not help the clear sky, so after checking with a colleague on the coast who told me it was already clear out there, then we headed back to Tromsø and went west of the city.

Got our first little show on Kattfjordeidet where it was partly clear, and then it was a long wait for us, when I found a new place I never have been standing before during my over 1500 nights out... several guides left the area before midnight since it was just a very faint band of the Northern lights all evening...

We waited to 00.50 am when she really begin to show what she is good for, and my 14 Phillipines guests was more than happy cause I didn´t went to early back to the city..;)

Patience is King!
