Aurora (Northern Lights) in Tromso – Norway (January 18th, 2012)

Well, I’m in Tromso – Norway at the moment and, well, staying here for few days, chilling in Warsaw then coming back to Kuwait.

My main purpose of coming here is to witness the Aurora (Northern Lights) and see it with my own two eyes.

Seeing it with naked eyes wasn’t as I expected. Yet, it made me skip few heart beats (That means I lost a year or two of my lifespan).

Here’s a time-lapse of the aurora which is made of 123 pictures in the following set up:
Shutter speed: 30″
ISO: 800
Aperture: 3.5
Lens: Rokinon FE8M-S 8mm F3.5 Fisheye Lens (My favorite)

I hope you enjoy the time-lapse :3

The orange light on the right you see is caused by city while the white\red lights on the ground you see are caused by the truck behind me (And people flashing their cameras around)

    1. Watching it naked eye is a different experience because its waaay less than that exposure. But according to the tours, it was weak because it wasn’t intensive as at least the day before.

      I’ll most likely hit it up again next year (Already loving Norway)
