A Class 4 geomagnetic storm resulting from a Coronal Mass Ejection lights up the horizon in Tromsø, Norway. Nearing the end of a solar maximum period of roughly eleven years, we were fortunate to witness this amazing, drifting display, owing to very cold winds that cleared Arctic skies for more than a week. The solar winds illuminated the Earth's magnetosphere for several, awe-inspiring hours, 220 nautical miles above the Arctic Circle.

While grilling pizzas, I noticed a red hue on the grill and looked up. Ran to the balcony and made a few images of the full moon rising into passing storm clouds and a spectacular red sunset. Lucky!
