Report from Eldey: We sailed out of the harbour in a crispy wind under partially cloudy skies. The aurora forecast was promising and the clouds were ment to clear revealing more and more of the star-studded skies. We could already see the planet Venus shining on the Western sky, opposing to the bright moon. Full of hope we started our northern lights hunt,  -all set with cameras and dressed up in warm overalls.  Clouds were passing by fast letting the star constellations Orion, Cassiopeia and Ursa Major peek through in between. To our big surprise, no green hues could be captured with cameras, no northern lights were starting. The sky was clearing up but no aurora activity in the sky. Predicting northern lights is a complicated science and sometimes the forecast turns out to be wrong, unfortunately. We have no control over this natural phenomenon but we want to make sure our passengers have enough chances to try to eventually get the proper aurora experience. Therefore everyone got a complimentary ticket allowing to come on another northern lights cruise again with us for free within the next two years.
