Other notes: Finally!!!! :-D :-D :-D First good aurora in 10 months, first good one after the 6th of November 2001!!! I am so happy! :-) The show went on all night and among the other things it had these ingredients: Pretty nice tall and bright rays, somewhat nice curtains and wonderful bright green arcs. Colors varied from faint to pretty bright green with some red and for sure also lot's of blue in the photos. The show offered also my first good corona after the 6th of nov and had just awesome wave like pulsation. One of the brightest half sky big pulsation that i have ever seen! Just...great! :-) Then as an bonus price i spotted quite a many shootings stars, maybe caught one in to photo AND saw a distant thundercloud simultaneuosly with the aurora!!!!! So...now i have seen that too. What a lucky night! :-)
