Nightsky in Kumlinge

Kumlinge is a municipality consisting of a group of small islands in Åland, an autonomous territory of Finland. Kumlinge, which is also the name of the largest island in the group, means "rocky passage." It also happens to be one of the darkest places you can find in Finland, due to the lack of large cities or street lighting nearby. We had a chance to visit Kumlinge in late December and actually had a few clear skied nights. It was a perfect chance to test out some nightsky timelapses. Aside from the multitude of stars, satellites and shooting stars, we caught a clear view of the Milkyway. To top it all off, we even managed to capture a brief view of the aurora borealis.
