Living in the far north has inspired my new found love of astronomy.
Every day I check the space weather website to see if I'll get to see any auroras at night.
This past Tuesday we witnessed one of the craziest light shows you could ever imagine. According to my trusty space weather site, a coronal mass ejection (a huge blast of solar wind) hit the earth, causing the incredible swirling auroras we got to see.
This is what it looked like right above our little apartment...
The colours were so intense, and my neighbours and I just stood there in complete awe looking up, as the lights whirled across the sky at incredible speed... I wish I had taken a video instead. Photographs really don't do it justice.
And after about 20 minutes, it all just disappeared, and it was just a normal night sky again...
but honestly, I can't stop thinking about it!
Next time I'll take a video to share with you all : )
