hannekje: Det kaller jeg et sammentreff. Jeg ble også tilfeldig fotografert en gang, på et Panoramiobilde. Da var det fotografen som så på bildene mine, og tidspunktet, og skjønte at det var meg som var en liten flekk på bildet.

this is called Polar stratospheric clouds, occured due to particulate matter in air, that is due to air pollution and increases the gases such as metan and carbonmonokside unfortunately.. but very beautiful photo

Trust me, gnihalg - this is the Aurora Borealis. That evening had one of last years better performances.

"An aurora is a natural light display in the sky, particularly in the polar regions, caused by the collision of charged particles directed by the Earth's magnetic field." source:wiki
