The sky was bright but the northern lights were brighter, what an end to the season. The first burst of activity from the northern lights got us all watching the sky and as we stood there a meteorite burned bright orange heading north for all of us to see. The northern lights came and went but on the return journey we quickly pulled over at one of our usual stopping places to watch the last and the brightest burst of northern lights. What a stunning end to our trip and this season, looking forward to the next one already.
The sky was beautiful for this trip, the thin cloud just added to the experience as it formed and then cleared away. The stars were bright in the pale moonlit sky, with twilight hanging on to the northern edge of our view. The northern lights were so very pale tonight, barely visible but there was always hope under such a sky.
The sky tonight was so clear, the snow hard and crisp to walk on as the ground frost took a firm grip on this land. The landscape was so beautiful in the moonlight,the occasional call from an owl in the forest reminded us we are never truly alone.
As we headed out into the wilderness to our viewing location, the sky still filled with day light. As always we kept watch for any wildlife we might see, there were plenty of mountain hares again tonight to be seen. Then all of a sudden 2 roe dear ran across the road in front of us, followed by 2 more. What a sight to see, they are such beautiful animals and very difficult to catch a sight of. The sky stayed hazy, though our hill top did its best to open the haze more. The stars kept sparking and the landscape was looking so good in the moonlight, around the fire futures were revealed.
Our trip tonight started under a bright evening sky, the fading day light taking its time to leave the sky to darkness. As we walked up the hill to our viewing location the northern lights were rippling across the still bright sky, what a start to the night. The northern lights faded then brightened several times as we watched, and sure enough going around the fire gave the northern lights that chance to fill the sky. We were straight out to watch them, sausages gently steaming under the northern lights while we watched. What a fantastic night, it also looked like the mountain hares were all out to watch the northern lights, we counted 30 in total tonight on our way out and back, that is a lot of eyes staring at the northern lights.
The journey out into the wilderness was under a hazy sky full of sunset colours, the north western sky was still glowing when we arrived to our hill top viewing spot. As the day light faded away the northern lights began to reveal themselves to us, so easy to see in the photographs. The sky was clear and the landscape beautiful in the moonlight, the snow now hard as the frost returned under the clear sky. The northern lights brightened from time to time, we kept a careful watch on the sky so as not to miss anything. Even the mountain hares were inspired tonight, we saw 26 hopping about as we traveled to and from our wilderness location.
The sky was cloudy as we made our way out to the wilderness, some clear patches gave us hope. The still bright twilight illuminated the landscape for our journey, the moon waited for its chance to stand out. The cloud though began to clear once we arrived to our hill top, small holes appeared which then began to join together slowly revealing the clear starry sky. The northern lights were there and as Saturdays day light faded away the northern lights became more visible, some hint of colours in the photographs so another good night for photography.
