Ny-Alesund in one photo

So much is happening in this photo.
In front of the iconic scenery of Kongsfjorden with Colletthogda and Tre Kroner in the back, we got the emblematic train used during the coal mining era, smoking polar lights into the sky, with this pink glare over the village, triggered by the sun reflections on the polar stratospheric clouds.
This was not enough, so I had a meteor from the Ursids meteor shower.
And all that is Ny-Ålesund my friend.
All of this is during the polar night, sun is not setting since October 24th, we can see the mountains in the background with the almost full moon.
