I was preparing to go to sleep. Before I went to the bathroom I gave a quick look out of the window and what a sight. Northern lights, a bit dim but still noticeable from my dorm room despite all the lights on the parking lot below. When I saw them I took my camera with light speed and took couple of shots. Here is a taste of it. My only regret is that I didn’t go with other guys out of the city lights to watch them. I wasn’t expecting them this early in the summer (there is a bit of horizon still visible at this hour).

First sight of northern lights.
