Aurora Viewing #3

Curtains & Piano Keys

-25 °C

These late nights are really taking a toll…tonight was the 3rd night of my Aurora viewing – this time it was with Sean Norman Tours. I was picked up just before 10:00 p.m. and we ventured out along some ice road networks before settling in on a spot where we would use as a base for the evening. The van continued to run, so there was a spot to hop into if you needed to warm up which was good because it was -25 degrees Celsius. Our group was small and consisted only of 8 people which was great!

Although the night sky was cloud free, the Aurora illumination was pretty quiet at the beginning of the night. But it certainly picked up and provided another excellent display of the Northern Lights.

Very cool *curtains*, as they are often referred as. We witnessed some really cool formations and colours. The lights were dancing across the sky and changing every minute! Such a sight to see! Another amazing night!!!

I still think the first night was THE. BEST. but I certainly do not regret going out every night to experience it over and over again. Who needs sleep when you could be seeing THAT?

We headed back into the city at about 1:30 a.m. which got me back to my hotel around 2:00 a.m. I think I may even have had a wee snooze in the van during the ride back.

Traveller’s Tip #8: Do what you can. How much you can. Whenever you can. Keep enjoying your time – you can sleep when you get home!
