Rare winter aurora.

Submitted by: Tom Eklund at Mon Jan 5 23:14:01 2004 UTC

Here in southern Finland the months of December, January and February are about as good aurora watching time as any of the summer months. Meaning no show. In 7-8 aurora watching years i have managed to see as many as 1 good show during those winter months. That's why this picture is quite extraordinary. This picture is not from that show that i saw on early years of my "aurora watching career", but from one very brief aurora in late December 2001. I bought my camera in year 2000 and after that this is the only somewhat large winter aurora that i have seen. Here the auroras and the snow just do not like to mix together. More pictures:
