No stupid questions :)

No need to be that fast, at least that night.
after the first faint aurora, three other bright auroras came.
the first last about 2-3 minutes and I was almost crying as the focus was not spotted on.
that one and the next one last about 5-10 minutes, but it is continuously moving and dancing.
I enjoyed auroras almost during two hours.

-35 !?, that's too cold for me... at Lofoten, thanks to Gulf Stream it is close to zero - but also with a huge chance of clouds.

a last advice: the sun activity is cyclic, having a maximum evey 11 years, with best chances for auroa the years close to maximum. last maximum was in 2013, so it will be fainter next year and even more fainter the year after...
