I've been wondering this for a while and haven't found any good answers to this question: Are northern lights strong enough (at night) to be a light source? And if yes, will the light be colored? Will a full moon overpower them? I sadly don't live anywhere close to where they occur anymore, and have only seen them once (so far).
The reason I'm asking is, of course, that I want to paint a scenery with northern lights at night, probably a snowy landscape.
