Only one day until we reach Tromso, Norway
9-29-05


“Look, you can see beautiful Norway”, was the morning call. A gorgeous sunny day
awaited us outside the ship. And yes, from the starboard side one could spot the mountains of Norway.

What a journey over the top of the world is behind us! People are packing, paying bills in the Java Hut (ship’s store), downloading and exchanging photos. Sometimes we realize that we will soon say good bye…sometimes.

I catch myself opening the heavy doors with a different touch than 2 month ago. It seems the Healy had become my home. Well, there are lots of things still to do. Stay tuned.

Best regards,
Ute Kaden


PS - I saw the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) for the first time. Yesterday, the night was clear and pale greenish glowing curtains, arcs and bands wobbled over the night sky. What a spectacular sight.


What is an Aurora Borealis?

An aurora is causes by electrically charged particles ejected by the sun, streaming earthward and interacting with the upper atmosphere (oxygen-green and nitrogen atoms,). The path taken by the particles is controlled by the earth magnetic field. Auroras form an oval shape around the geomagnetic poles.
