Auroral Corona

Its an incredible sight to witness when the skies are clear and the levels of geomagnetic activity are strong enough to provide coronal bursts like this. We drove for 7 hours from Tromsø to get here for clear skies and aurora. We we ended up with was a dream of an evening, we had aurora from sunset all the way through until sunrise the next morning and witnessed five huge bursts of activity which all provided coronas like this one.
