The Finnish Meteorological Institute has a great site called Auroras Now!, almost as good as being there, not really, but its the closest I will probably get. This is part of the European Space Agency Space Weather Pilot Project which is monitoring conditions on the sun, solar winds and the magnetosphere amongst other things.
This card came from Seppo in Tuusula who tells me that the weather is cloudy and -3 degrees centigrade, hope it has warmed up a little over there since he sent it.
The card travelled 1,823 kilometres and took 6 days. Thank you Seppo.
