Aurora And A Full Moon

This evening is the first time we’ve seen proper northern lights since we lost the midnight sun (so the sky is dark enough to see them). If the weather is good, this is a fantastic time of year. During the day, clear blue skies and glorious sunshine. Rose and gold sunsets. And after sunset, the sky running from a golden band looking north, to blue-black with an orange ‘harvest moon’ in the south. And this evening, the aurora lit up most of the sky. Very special. However, it took a few minutes to organise the camera / focus and ourselves, so the pictures only show the tail end of the display.
