Update on November 17th

In the evening of the 17th there was again some Auroral (Nordlys) activity in the sky, and me and my girlfriend rushed out to get a glimpse of it. Unfortunately the moon was quite bright so the pictures didnt become the best ones ever, but the scenery was awesome. White mountains and tundra lit up by moonlight, with green mist on the dark blue skye. And as the last picture shows, it was a pretty cold evening. -18 Celsius demands proper clothes. But I find it quite remarkable that I managed to get a bright moon and aurora in the same picture!

November 17th

This is Longyearbyen in winterplumage. There has been a lot of photos online lately of the Aurora (Nordlys) which has been seen on the skyline lately, but since I havent managed to get myself out there when the Aurora has been there this is the best I can do so far this season.
