Northern lights in Vecaki beach | Polārblāzma Vecāķu pludmalē

Northern lights is a rare phenomenon in Latvia and even more rare in Riga city but in March 2015 it was possible to see them here. Noticed information on Twitter - so took a car and we got to Vecāķi beach, northernmost area in Riga, the place where one can escape the light pollution of the city. As you see in first photo, city lights are very strong even in this distant area of Riga - they're to the left side, and aurora borealis stays on the opposite, right side. In case if you think northern lights really looked like in these photos I can assure you - it didn't. In reality it all looked much less colorful, actually it was just white/grey but already in photo camera screen it showed mostly green color. It turns out, that the colors of aurora borealis can't be seen with a naked eye, they appears only in photography.
