Capture Aurora Borealis at Rensjön

TWAN friend Yuichi Takasaka went to Abisko to photograph the Northern lights so me and my father took a long drive to Kiruna to meet him and also capture the Aurora. Such a beautiful place this Sami village, frost all around, - 16 degree C  and a very low sun. We had three nights to do this and we got three clear nights with Aurora every night, full pott! Around 300GB with photos. We also captured some Leonids and a proton arc.
Here is a little timelapse of a turbulent atmosphere..
