Encounter with Northern Lights!
On the 3rd day, we drove to Utsjoki, border of Finland and Norway, 200 kms from Saariselkä because we had insights about seeing the best Northern Lights there. It was worth driving for 200 kms in snow and icy roads during night with a very old car. But this time, it was a dream come true! We were almost on the top of the world. We were in Utsjoki which is the border of Norway and Finland from the north. Swipe left to the last picture to see my location. Watching Northern Lights was on my bucket list. I was always very curious about how these happen and how their pattern and colors change. In a single frame of 10 seconds there were not less than 100 pattern changes in the sky along with change of colors to Blue, Red, Green and Yellow. What I saw, I think I would never see something like that again which is pure nature and real. If I see something great than this, it will be some better Northern Lights than these. I was awestruck when I saw these. We really did make a lot of efforts to watch the best Northern Lights in Finland and I am very sure that we saw the best and better than anyone who saw these on that day. We parked the car right beside E75 on the top of the hill in parking area! We stood there for 5 hrs just to admire these. The temperature was -24° C. You get out of car for more than 1 min, everything froze, yeah, even your blood. I couldn't sense my body as soon as I was out for than 1 minute because I had to capture these on my camera. I never wanted to come back from there and I wished I could see those for my entire life. Swipe left to see the hyperlapse and some more pictures of Auroras.
To everyone reading out this post, you should not miss seeing Northern Lights(Auroras). Put this on your bucket list and do see these once in your lifetime. It will be better than any of the beautiful destinations all of us visit in the world.
Stay tuned for my last part on my trip to North Pole, Arctic Circle, Finland
