Northern Lights, Lapland, Finland
“Caused when charged particles from (the) Sun collide with atoms and molecules in the Earth’s atmosphere at the altitude of 90-250 km. Due to the collision oxygen and nitrogen are emitting auroral light.”
Annika was kind enough to send me this card from her home in Rauma, Finland, which is in the Region of Lapland. I’m sure it’s fun to step out of one’s house at night and be able to look up and see this on a regular basis.
How about that stamp? It is die-cut (cut to a pattern, not cut on a square) so that the flag extends beyond what would normally be the stamp’s edge. Very cool.
