While starting an imaging session of deep sky wonders some alarms came thru the cellular phone and I soon realized this is going to be a night of spectacular Aurora Borealis. The show started typically with a bow in the northern part of the sky. Well, this was expected: 3 weeks to aurora maximum (equinox). The green was very bright, but no remarkable phonomena raised and the fog from the warm sea water finally ruined all my attentions soon after midnight.
