Polar lights show

We were spoiled by an incredible display on the 06.11 night, although there was no geomagnetic storm underway, apparently triggered by elevated solar winds in the Arctic. One of my most amazing sighting from here [image: 🙂].

Rocket launch SS-520-3 / JAXA

Rocket SS520-3 from JAXA departed this morning at 10:09:25 UTC! On the second day of the lauching window, congratulation to JAXA & Andoya Space Center team that worked on it.
I kind of heard that all parameters sounds nominal (science and lauching aspects), which makes it an even greater achievement!
Spectacular launch, everybody in town were very excited about it ! I got a nice shot of the launch featuring the Blue House of AWIPEV. We can see the full burst of the first booster, second booster was unfortunately too vertical, on top of our heads [image: 🙁].
Few details about the rocket are available here <>
