Aurora statistics (2006 onwards) from Sodakylä based on the iCCD and sky-I camera data

The amount of the aurora nights (green bar) is visually studied from time lapse movies made for every observation night. The night with any visible aurora in the view is calculated as an aurora night. The optical season starts around 20 August and end around 20 April. Aurora rate for Aug and Mar is calculated against observation nights.

The white bards presents polar day over the summer months (May-Jul) north from the Arctic Circle, when the auroras are not optically visible due to Sun light.

The yellow spots present montly average of the daily geomagnetic activity index Ak.
