It wasn't exactly the plan, to drive into the oncoming storm, but it turned out to be for the best.

After earlier in the night, trying to outrun the front of it to the east, and failing, we turned around, made a - sort of brief - stop to talk with another guide about the weather - which turned into a not that brief talk about magnetism, magnetic fields, a lot more about magnetic fields, but again the weather, and found the smallest little break in the clouds just as a burst of aurora danced above us.
