The recovered tide gauge
After dinner, Darron, Pete C and I went out to Bechervaise Island for the night staying in one of the four huts out there. We made our way out there all right in the dark and got ourselves settled. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and a few beers and latter I went out to photograph some aurora activity that was taking place. It was hard to shoot as it was so dark and I couldn't illuminate the huts to my desire and I was a bit disappointed. I stayed out for quite some time and I had to regularly keep changing batteries to warm them up again when suddenly the moon started to rise and around the same time the aurora started to go nuts. It went super bright and was swirling all around the sky as quick as you could turn in every direction. When they do this it is really something to see. I was yelling out to the other guys to get out and take a look at the action and by the time they finally emerged most of the action was over. It was a great display and finished off a great night.
