Colorful Northern Lights Display above Dark Sky® Alqueva in Portugal

| | |

Captured on May 10th, 2024 after a sequence of CME’s which triggered a strongest magnetic storm in the last 20 years, the panoramic image reveals an impressive display of northern lights as seen from my location at 38º in Dark Sky® Alqueva, Portugal. I could even see it with my naked eyes around 23h15, specially the vertical fast moving bands. I could photograph more Aurora Borealis than when I visited Iceland for the first time back in 2019. I was expecting something more subtle in reddish hues, but it was full of colors and sometimes going very high almost reaching the Zenith.

PT: Captada em 10 de maio de 2024, após uma sequência de CME’s que desencadeou a tempestade magnética mais forte dos últimos 20 anos, a imagem panorâmica revela uma exibição impressionante da aurora boreal vista a partir da minha localização a 38º no Dark Sky® Alqueva, Portugal! Foi impressionante, captei mais Auroras nesta noite, do que quando visitei a Islândia pela primeira vez em 2019. Esperava algo mais subtil e em tons avermelhados, mas foi um espectáculo de cores incrível aos “olhos da câmara”. Visualmente é muito difícil de ver, só mesmo um olho treinado e nos céus escuros do Dark Sky® consegue detectar algum luminosidade estranha – porque as células cones não funcionam nestas circunstâncias.
