This iReport is part of an assignment:
Light Years: Your view of space and stars
Meteor in Milky Way & red and green auroras
My friend tagged along and we found a good spot near Haukipudas, Finland. The only 'problem' I had were the faint urban lights on the right. Or so I thought, because actually they were red and green auroras!! Imagine how happy I was :)
Passing right through the Milky Way was a meteor probably from the Orionid meteor shower, debris from Halley's comet.
Seeing all these wonders not made by us humans makes me think just how tiny we really are..
