The sky was clear, island residents were super enthusiastic about seeing the northern lights and it was the weekend. A perfect combination to stay out late in the hope of seeing another spectacular light show. Unfortunately the aurora is a fickle event and we only saw a very faint glow in the distance.
Of course we were a little disappointed but it was worth a try and there was overwhelming agreement that the stars were incredible!
We've been a little obsessed with the lights, even creating a piece of sand art at the weekend but the season will soon be over as near permanent twilight will render the sky too light to view the aurora.
