    Default Hi Sigaporeans.

    Hi Sigaporeans, can you shoot the Northern Lights from where you are? If so I may bring my tripods when I come over later in the year. Thanks.

    When a 1.4 Megaton W49 thermonuclear (fusion) warhead detonated 400 kilometres above the surface of the earth in outer space during Operation Dominic / Fishbowl (Starfish Prime), aurora can be seen from Hawaii to New Zealand.

    Can, but you need to take MRT train 20 times in a row from East to West, cleanse yourself and ensure that you have a Gitzo tripod, Nikon D4S, Nikon 14-24mm, Lee filters & Singh-Ray filters. The Northern Lights in Singapore will only show itself to truly serious photographers. Even if you are perched on top of a Batman spotlight on top of UOB Plaza, it will appear for you and you alone.

    Even if it was really possible to have Northern Lights here, the amount of light pollution will give a poor result.. only places like NYC, Tokyo or Hong Kong keep more lights on at night..

    Framing Northern lights with the arch of train tunnel may be a good composition?

    I think the kids will love it as I can make them rolling on the floor laughing.

    But not sure I'll be welcomed by the teachers.
