Aurora Borealis, also called Northern Lights are hardly visible on continental Europe. They mostly occur in the high latitude regions. I was keen on getting out with my camera tonight as one of these amazing phenomena was forecasted as far down “south” as Luxembourg. I must admit that I wasn’t really optimistic but as it was a beautiful starry night I could at least get some decent night shots. I pointed my camera North and took a couple of images. I could see some strange violet lights on my LCD screen but wasn’t sure about what it really was. It was only back home on my computer that I realised that I had witnessed one of the most amazing and strange phenomena !
