OH5IY's AURORA PHOTOS


Jan. 2000



April 6. 2000: K=9!!

My first photo of the MAJOR STORM 6/7 April 2000.
City lights fade the corona behind the antennas,
so more photos taken on a dark site:


 


 

Kodak Gold 1000, 50 mm 1:2, 5 to 15 s exposures.
These were shot 2000-04-06/07 at 2000...2120 UTC, Kuusankoski.
The K index at Nurmijärvi observatory was 9 on three consecutive periods - this
occurs rarely, specially at midnight and clear weather when the moon is not in the sky.


HP 850 16 s exposures, 100 ASA setting, post processed.

2003-10-18 at 2115 UTC, Kuusankoski.
