7/11 2017: Quite unexpectedly, Kp climbs to 7. Even in the moonshine the aurora gets a strong outburst for a short while. It's like in the north! The pictures are taken in Hestra, close to home.

14/10 2017: On saturday morning Dante and me decide to take a trip to the north. The forecast is Kp4, nothing extreme. But the weather should be clear at some places towards the north. We choose Rönnskär close to Hudiksvall, reaching it in the evening. We get what we expect but not more. However, we are happy with  it, a fairly strong and fast moving aurora at its most active period.    


27/9 2017: After a larger coronal hole on the sun we get some strong auroras with Kp reaching around 6. It never gets really active, but beautiful anyway. The pictures are taken outside Grimsås.      


14/9 2017: After rain, rain and more rain, finally an aurora  that I can see trough a hole in the clouds! Kp reaches over 6 and I can test my new camera, Nikon D5600.  

19/8 2017: A coronal hole produces some nice auroras. I go to the north, far enough to reach the auroras but not too far, so it gets dark at night. This compromize takes me to Rönnskär just north of  Hudiksvall.  

23/4 2017: Another night with a beautiful aurora. After midnight it got active with violet lightpillars. The pictures are taken from Hofsnäs, close to my home.  

4/1 2017: A short visit in Bodø, Norway starts up really bad. Instead of clear skies as predicted, it's cloudy. Instead of a Kp 5 as predicted, there is a 2. I'm starting to wonder if the whole trip will be wasted.  
But as the clouds start to disperse, a nice aurora developes and makes me a lot happier.Then, around 22:30 the sky suddenly "explodes" and I get some magnificent corona pictures.  The aurora is green, white and pink then.



31/12 2016: Instead of the usual new year fireworks I give myself a journey to Härnösand chasing auroras. This time I'm not dissapointed! With two peaks, one hour apart, of a strong, fast moving aurora the evening is a total success!  


9/12 2016: Greetings from Gussö outside Luleå in north Sweden! I'm visiting Ulf Jonsson and the first picture shows his house. The aurora doesn't dissapoint, a beatiful lightshow especially in the early evening!
