Skywatch Friday and Himmelsk

I have posted northern lights, Aurora Borealis, before. But every time I see them, which is not very often as far south as we are, I am totally in awe of what nature can come up with. So here it is again, from September 27, my first sighting this season. It went on for hours, changing between cloudy and clear skies, and in between I got some lucky shots. 

Nordlys er ingen dagligdags hendelse på Bømlo, men av og til er vi heldige, og når det skjer er jeg like imponert hver gang. Natt til 27. September var første gang denne sesongen. Det vekslet mellom skyet og klarvær, men heldigvis var det mildt og godt, så det gikk fint å stå ute å vente.

Nordlys er alltid spennende og her har du få fanget det veldig fint, jeg hørte om denne natta lidt for seint så jeg får prøve meg neste gang anledningen byr seg.

Amazing Inger...this is something I have always wanted to witness for myself...thank goodness I have friends who live in places where they can see it and share the beauty through photographs.

This is so beautiful. I've seen one small display of the Northern Lights, some years ago, near Calgary, which is quite far south. I'm still looking forward to going up north to see more.
In the meantime, please keep posting your photos. It is something most people never see.

It's an amazing experience to see the aurora borealis. I have seen them several times, and each time it's magical. You have photographed them beautifully.

I've always dreamed of seeing the northern lights, I don't know if I ever will, but I still dream about them.

You are fortunate to be living in a place where you can see the aurora borealis often. What a dazzling display!

The Northern Lights--wow, what a wonderful thing to be able to see. It is something we just read about or see pictures of here, so to see the "real thing" would be phenomenal. Great photo. Have you recuperated from your wonderful trip to Australia? Mickie :)

Et virkelig nydelig nordlysbilde! Lenge siden jeg har sett nordlyset nå. Men det hender jo det viser seg av og til her i Trøndelag.

Stunning! The Northern Lights are just amazing.

Eksepsjonelt flott!

Hi there - that’s very high on my list of "must see". We get a version in the South - but it's even harder to see because of the lack of land!

Splendid pictures.

God helg!

Bare å bøye seg i støvet; lekkert! Takk for titten ;)

Trevlig helg :)

That's magic! Jag är ju från Umeå, men har bara något svagt minne av att vi såg norrsken en gång.

Wonderful capture! I've seen three of them last March of this year for the first time since I moved here from the Philippines two years ago. And it was a great experience for me. I've always loved aurora borealis and dreamed of seeing it. My dream came true.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful sightings.
