I was lucky to see it with my own eyes from my home on the country side slightly north of Oslo. In the land of the midnight sun, auroras in the summer are not easy to spot, if at all, as the nights are to light.In the southern part of Norway it was however dark enough to view the heavenly spectacle. Even in Denmark, the southern most Scandinavian country, could see the impressive light show in the sky this time. Below is a selection of images from Scandinavia.
