Vibrant Red Aurora Borealis Near Grøtfjord

Mike Zawadzki

There aren't a wide variety of greens in the Aurora Borealis. Most of the strength of the green tones are controlled by intensity and camera settings. However a variety of of other red, magenta, purple, and even vibrant pink colors can appear on the tops and bottoms of Auroral bands. On this night in October 2017 the Aurora caught on fire midway through the night over Grøtfjord. It did not remain extremely strong for an extended period of time, but the tops of the "curtains" were extremely red, probably the most red I have seen to date. The small tree on the hill has always been a favorite little accent to night time compositions here.
