Green bands over Stratenska Pila

26. July 2023
A calm and splendid night at the Stratenska Pila, Slovakia during my photography workshop. After several clouds, the sky finally got clear and the green structures along the stars appeared. But what exactly that is? Even if it has very similar colors to the northern lights, in fact, it’s an atmospheric phenomenon called airglow. Natural glowing of the Earth’s atmosphere caused by atomic oxygen at altitudes around 100km above ground. Sometimes the appearance of the airglow can create such nice strips and structures, which in this case was really beautiful.
