Sometimes, we are asked about how a northern light looks like. Well... this is exactly how it is when you look up during an aurora display, even with pink flashes.
This video was recorded on 10th, during a G1 minor solar storm. It was 500 m from the border in beetween Norway and Finland, near the lappish towm of Kilpisjärvi.
Such an incredible show.

As the night falls the stars light up in the sky, spin around along with the vast universe. While the moon rises in the sky, it steals their glory...
...But everything can be sealed by mighty Zeus the Thunder maker!
Viewed from Northampton, Massachusetts, USA. Photographed through a home-made 6" f/8 Newtonian telescope and Canon 60Da camera. Exposures range from 1/1000 sec to 1 sec at ISO 400. The night was very cold, about 0F (-18C), and very clear.
This image sequence clearly shows the Starlink satellites as they passed over Arizona on May 26 2019. Although the satellites themselves are streaked you can still clearly differentiate them and see the train as it flies by. You can also see that the train is starting to separate and the inclination of the individual satellites changing. It seems the objects at the end of the train have shifted the furthest from the lead orbit. I shot the images with a DSLR while I was observing at the Kuiper 61in telescope on Mt Bigelow, north of Tucson AZ.
A VR flight through the Universe, using real data from the ALFALFA survey and Sloan Digital Sky Survey. 30,086 galaxies all shown using their correct, unique images, with the camera moving at a speed equivalent to 500 trillion times faster than light. You'll need a headset to view this in its full glory, but it will still play in a regular browser (you can even use the old style red/blue glasses if you want). More info in the video description on YouTube.
I was at Tololo during the total solar eclipse, and we made a video with Arnaud Thiry (Astronogeek), using a drone and other cameras.
Astronogeek is a french famous youtube chanel with more than 500 000 followers.
The guy that you can see in the video with his telescope is a friend of us, Nicolas Lefaudeux. You already know him : you published 2 of his pictures as an APOD after 2017 eclipse in USA : https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap190130.html His new challenge is to obtain a better image, it will take him a couple of months to process it.
You can clearly see the shadow coming from the ocean and geting inside the valley before arriving at Tololo.
