pink x-mas on spitsbergen
24 December 2021
At 3:00 o'clock on Christmas Morning, Fieke Rader, working on the French-German station AWIPEV, is on the Dutch radio NP01 explaining about how people are celebrating Christmas in the dark Arctic. She mentions the pink light which is visible on the horizon, coming from a reflection of sunlight on stratospheric clouds. This is the first time since 2015, that the sun below the horizon produces this reflection. Greg Pixophil made the picture above and posted it on Facebook. It is another spectacular light effect, like the northern light, in the dark polar winter
In the video below, Fieke tells her story in Dutch. Below this video there is a picture by Christelle Guesnon from Facebook, which shows both the northern light and the pink horizon.
