Despite the fact that Svalbard islands aren't considered to be one of the best places for viewing the northern lights because they hang as a big doughnut shaped curtain around the magnetic north pole, approximately along the 69th parallel. (This curtain normally runs south of Svalbard and north of Iceland. Northern Scandinavia is straight in it's path )However the last night we got super lucky viewing some activity in an area with absolutely no light pollution
