Northern Lights Above the Lofoten Islands of Norway

June 07, 2021


Photographer: Alvaro Perez
Summary Authors: Alvaro Perez; Jim Foster
This majestic aurora was observed above northern Norway,
specifically from the Lofoten Islands. Because of these island’s
privileged geographical position, where the auroral oval often
traverses, they're one of best places in the world to enjoy the
northern lights. However, by late spring the night sky at these
latitudes isn't dark enough to easily detect auroras.

The faster particles emanating from the Sun ( solar wind) move, the
more intense the geomagnetic activity ( Kp index), and thus,
typically, the brighter the aurora. Photo taken on February 18, 2019.
