After long periods of time with little or no lights, it is a relief to see so many stars accompanied by their good friend. The lights warm up everyones heart when they're on display, helping us manage with the colder evening temperatures. With a family from Australia and a couple from Italy, the evening could not have been better. Great company to watch a long awaited night display.
On a normal night we would head out to a lakeside around 55km from Rovaniemi, but this night brought us the lights directly over the city. So we didn't waste anytime in the car and took some photos at Explore Lapland office, then set out to a close by dark spot. We then took the opportunity to go lakeside 15km outside Rovaniemi to appreciate the view from a different perspective.
