Fantastic Northern Lights across Lapland!

Last night, after an X-class solar flare, there appeared very beautiful northern lights across large parts of Scandinavia and Finland. The All-Sky Camera of the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory, which is part of the University of Oulu, and a partner in the current EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase Study, have been recording these events all night.  The best 2 hours of auroral display have now been uploaded to YouTube for you to enjoy!

Watch the movie here!
