SWEDEN: When Johan William Löfgren was out to photograph the aurora on the sky, he saw a strange light.
John William Löfgren, 34, has recently started photographing auroras. During the night of Wednesday, he was looking at the sky near Hjärmlarbaden, just east of Örebro.
- It was only a faint aurora borealis that night. But suddenly a shooting star appeared just above me. It was an absolutely brilliant green light with sparkles around it, he says.
Johan grabbed the camera and got a picture of the cool phenomenon. Just after the picture was snapped, the meteorite exploded into smaller pieces and burned up.
- It is the coolest thing I've seen. I've stared at the photo since. I've seen shooting stars before but nothing even remotely as strong as this, he says to Aftonbladet.
He also shared the image in an aurora group on Facebook, and people from all over central Sweden wrote that they had seen the shooting star.
- Several wrote that they felt shaking and heard bangs associated with light, but I heard nothing. I'm just so glad I got to see it.
