Meteor Shower and Solar Eclipse and Great Northern Lights Show!

Well, we are way north of the Arctic Circle, so the second biggest solar eclipse in Norway since 1954 won’t be visible here, but further south it will probably be a great show tomorrow!

Furthermore, the Earth is now passing the meteor shower, The Quadrantides, so step outside and watch for shooting stars! This site has advice for when to watch.

And finally, it has been a great night for watching the Northern Lights!
