Here in finland myth has it that the auroras are caused by a artic fox. The folklore suggests that far in the north an artic fox is running and as its fur touches the snowy mountains, they create sparks in the sky. There are different versions of the same folklore. Some believe the fox throws snow up in the sky with its tail and the moonlight reflected from the snowflakes creates the northern lights. Despite the myth, I consider myself pretty lucky this year with the chase of this illusive fire fox. This will be my third aurora sighting.
Sighting of the illusive firefox again
It was an spectacular show. I captured some keepers but I’ve learned not to stick to the same settings always. As i came home I saw somebody post this time lapse video. The guy was somewhere near because seems like we were in the same place. Next time i will try to do a time lapse too.
