Northen LIghts - Kefliavik-Iceland

An aurora is a natural light display in the sky (from the Latin word aurora, "sunrise" or the Roman goddess of dawn), predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Auroras are caused by charged particles, mainly electrons and protons, entering the atmosphere from above causing ionisation and excitation of atmospheric constituents, and consequent optical emissions. Incident protons can also produce emissions as hydrogen atoms after gaining an electron from the atmosphere.

Moon Trail at Ortygia -Syracuse - Unesco World Heritage
www.dariogiannobile.com
Copyright: Dario Giannobile Syracuse - Unesco World Heritage Site
A Moon trail during the blue hour enriches the sky of Ancient Syracuse that includes the nucleus of the city’s foundation as Ortygia by Greeks from Corinth in the 8th century BC. The site of the city, which Cicero described as ‘the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of all’, retains vestiges such as the Temple of Athena (5th century BC, later transformed to serve as a cathedral), a Greek theatre, a Roman amphitheatre, a fort and more.

After more than two hours of wind, cold and some rain, the clouds coverd the sky. I missed the last shots of the sequence but i decided to use some the shots i did before not to ruin all the efferts.

Moonbow and Mauna Kea. A few nights ago I was fortunate to capture the end of a moonbow as the sky cleared over Kamuela. This photo was taken around 3:00 AM, March 3rd.

lovejoy150308abrahamt_.jpg
Easy target near the delta Cas among open clusters. It was a frosty night and I had approx. an hour taking photos about the comet after twilight and before moonrise.
An annotated image is attached as well notating the clusters.

Thanks for viewing,

Incredible Northern Lights under the Iceland forest

Copyright: Lluís Romero & Javier Checa

The spectacle of Aurora Borealis requires dark and partly clear skies, but the night that we took this photo the moon was full, so the light moon illuminated the Sky better than I could imagine.
