I really need to take a trip to Sweden... it's only about an hour or two from Stuttgart, but I just don't have the time to go... LOL Maybe in November I will come and freeze my butt off and get some awesome star trails and aurora photos
Dunno... I heard Stockholm is pretty pricy... My buddy just went there for work purposes for only a couple days and was shocked by how much food, gas, and lodging was... at least compared to here in Germany... Regardless, thanks for the compliment, and I definitely do plan on visiting. I hope I can this winter, but if not then maybe next summer.
Well it kinda goes like this: Norwegians goes to Sweden to shop, Swedes goes to Denmark, Danes goes to Germany. So if you if you find it pricy in Sweden, imagine Norway I'd recommend winter this year or the next as the northernlights activity is forecast to peak now during a 12 year cycle.
I have never seen an aurora myself This shot is so impressive...so please forgive my stupid question: I know, that in your country the days are much longer / shorter depending on season than in mine. Nevertheless: do you have auroras also in summer? Til now I though it is a late autumn / winter phenomena. Thanks for the Llama
I get that question alot, so it's not a stupid question During summer we have a sun that don't set during the night, so it's up 24 for something like 2,5 months. And since the sun is up all the time we don't have any darkness and aren't able to see the auroras, which are there all year, but not visible due to the great amount of light. And during winter we have "complete" darkness and don't see the sun for 4-5 months. So the best months to see the Auroras would be november through january due to the fact that those months will be our darkest at night
Thanks for your answer! I read meanwhile at wiki about auroras I really had no idea, that sun does not set in Norway as well.Fascinating, but it must be hard to live such a long time without any daylight.
