So much WOW here! I'd love to know the chemical/elevation/atmospheric characteristics that made for the different features - the wispy orange, the green dots, the blue smudges. I can't see an actual path for the rockets, the displays seem quite dispersed. Then there's the background green aurora/airglow.
This opens up so many possibilities for artistic planetary displays. Why does Norway get to have all the fun?

What's wrong with the trees on these mountains? They're all growing in different directions.
They're suffering from "the vapors".
<<In the Victorian era, a variety of conditions which affected women were referred to as "a case of the vapours". Ladies' tight corsets could squeeze their internal organs, including the lungs, and could restrict breathing causing the wearer to feel faint and suffer "the vapours".
Over 4000 years of history, this disease was considered from two perspectives: scientific and demonological. It was cured with herbs, sex or sexual abstinence, punished and purified with fire for its association with sorcery and finally, clinically studied as a disease and treated with innovative therapies. However, even at the end of 19th century, scientific innovation had still not reached some places, where the only known therapies were those proposed by Galen. The evolution of these diseases seems to be a factor linked with social “westernization”, and examining under what conditions the symptoms first became common in different societies became a priority for recent studies over risk factor.
Today, the phrase "a case of the vapors" is most often used either melodramatically or for comedic effect.>>

I agree. Does anyone know which chemicals produced which effects observed in this photo?
