Moon above the Narvik Airport airstrip in long-distance floodlights

Long-distance floodlights on runways are remotely turned on by pilots on the commercial flights trafficing the local airports in Norway. This makes the airports visible from long distances. As the aircraft approaches the airport, the floodlights are dimmed as not to blind the pilots on final approach for landing.
