Wow, something I’ve always wanted to see in person. Beautiful Photo.
The latest two days has been spectacular, with great outburst of bright auroras. There are quite a few tourists in Tromsoe theese days, just for the Auroras.They has probably had the time of their lives.Together with bright Auroras, we also has had a great, clear weather.So welcome to Tromsoe!

what time of night was it, how do you know when to check the great outdoors or where you out for some other reason? A Fav for me.
Aurora appears mostly at night, between 19:00 to 24:00. But in general there’s Aurora at all time. But to see it, it has to be dark, of course. And clear sky…I use informations from two websites:
and the local website from University of Tromsø:
Thanks so much Frank. We do get Aurora Australis here but this can only been seen from Tasmania (most southerly state of Australia) see link
