This was my first night on the Lofoten islands. I knew the conditions were pretty good but I preferred keeping sceptical. And finally I decided to go with some of my new colivers and see at least the Milky Way. And finally they appeared! 😮 My first Northern lights ever, an extraordinary moment, a wonderful show given by Mother Earth, a very good start for my 30 days long stay here. 🙏Thanks to JC ( @explorer ) for capturing and editing that picture. ➕If you want to see more of my pics, see my Facebook page (link in bio)
The Story: Have you ever seen the northern lights before? If you haven't, a trip to the Yukon between mid-August to mid-April just might treat you to this great natural wonder of the world. (📸 @wild_billiam) #canadaexplored

Repost from @explorenasa. @NASA Astronaut Randy "Komrade" Bresnik captured this stunning video from the International Space Station and posted to his social accounts Sept. 23 saying, "#Science is beautiful! The aurora is an incredible light show caused by collisions between gaseous particles with charged particles." Variations in color are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding. The most common aurora color which is green, is produced by oxygen molecules located about 60 miles above the earth. Happy #spacesaturday folks!

Lightshow alert! 👀 Astronomers using our @NASAHubble Space Telescope spotted auroras, or dancing lights, on Saturn’s north pole region.
In contrast to the auroras on Earth, Saturn’s auroras are most easily imaged and studied in ultraviolet using space telescopes. Hubble allowed researchers to monitor the behavior of the auroras at Saturn's north pole over an extended period of time back in 2017 in order to create this composite image. The Hubble observations were coordinated with the "Grand Finale" of the Cassini spacecraft, when the spacecraft simultaneously probed the auroral regions of Saturn. Data allowed astronomers to learn more about Saturn’s magnetosphere, which is the largest of any planet in the Solar System other than Jupiter.

day twenty nine: dancing Aurora • woke up really late feeling quite bad (like having a cold) and some headache nice way to start the day, right? the first thing that I got in the kitchen were two glasses of water and after that I picked an orange. I thought it would be nice to start the day with some fruit and vitamin C. • A little later I cooked myself a big and warm bowl of oatmeal with banana, apple, cinnamon and a tiny scoop of peanut butter. It was pretty delicious and I was missing the healthy food I used to cook back at home. •
the participants went to another excursion, Hot River Hike which I haven’t done yet but all of them always come back saying how much did they liked it. I will have to go soon at some point. I mean, having a ‘bath’ in a hot river in the middle of nature in Iceland.. what else would one need? • I stayed at home the whole morning and decided to keep reading the book I’m reading at the moment. Warmed up some leftovers from yesterday for my late lunch and then finished the book. Actually it was a short one so with just two days you’re done. Steal Like an Artist. • When the participants got back home, the two Spanish ones started to cook dinner as this evening we were having another excursion an needed to leave the house earlier. We had some lentils (the Spanish way) and roasted veggies. Not bad at all I must say. • The best was yet to come. After dinner everybody changed their clothes to warmer ones and put on some more layers because ‘baby, it’s cold outside’. The vans picked us up and with all our cameras and tripods to Aurora Hunting we all went! • It’s f*cking STUNNING/AMAZING/OTHERWORLDLY… call it how you want but jahfkjah.. I have no words to actually express what I’ve seen and felt tonight out in the cold in the sky in Pinvellir National Park. We’ve been SO DAMN lucky to park the vans, go out and see the most gorgeous dancing (crazy) #auroras in the sky going from green to magenta in the best spot with no lights around and a super clear sky. I will never ever forget tonight experience!! 🌌💚
Stay tuned for more!
