    Default Northern lights

    Hi,
    I was wondering who saw the auroras, when and where, especially. I came across a website with wonderful aurora pictures from Tampere (!) and I'd really love to see them.

    this winter we did not see any aurora yet. i suppose , that, maybe one
    reason is, that the real coldness did not yet arrive.
    also not at 65° latitude, where i live.
    i live here since May last year, move to Finland from Germany
    So i am still wating for aurora borealis , because i like this phenomenon also

    I have seen it twice over the last couple of years. The best places to see it are up north so I have been told. Here in Simpele, it appears green and quite faint, low on the horizon.

    yes, you're right, I mean, don't know how is it in the other countries, but especially in Finland it's really important to have a good name (like some name you can live with), because from the first day you go to school to the all nine years or more you're there, other students will make up different kinds of nicknames to you by changing your own name. Some of them are friendly, some of them are for teasing you, and in every case you'd be better to like it, because if you don't, and will show it, so called teasers will definitely use it, in the worst case thru your hole life.
    So I'm really happy about my name, because it's that kind of from which anybody haven't been able to come up with any good variations.
    Well, okay they wouldn't have had noses anymore after trying, but that's minor point...^.^
