Photographers capture the Northern Lights at Kibbelkoele, in Aalden and in the Onlanden

The Northern Lights could be seen in various places in the northeast of the Netherlands on Sunday evening.

Several photographers captured the natural phenomenon. “Unfortunately, it cannot be seen with the eye, but it can be beautifully depicted photographically,” says Fabian Grave of Persbureau Meter.

Grave took photos in Aalden with the Jantina Hellingmolen in the foreground and also at the Kibbelkoele between Noord-Sleen and Schoonoord.

His colleague Ruben Huisman went to the Onlanden with the camera. The Northern Lights are caused by electrically charged particles from the sun colliding with the atmosphere at high speed. This produces pink and green light phenomena.
