Aurora Borealis, Sweden

We were lucky enough to witness some very early auroras over the Abisko Mountain Lodge on March 1, 2013. The skies were clear, with only wispy clouds interfering come nighttime. Abisko National Park in northern Sweden is rated as one of the best places in the world to try and see this natural light phenomenon, being located perfectly beneath the central parts of the auroral oval. During my last day there, a coronal stream collided with our magnetic field and produced very early and intense aurorae as soon as darkness set.
