Places to watch aurora at Levi

Best aurora views are seen from august till the end of the may when there is enough darkness. Camera is located at Levi, Köngäs area, north to the Elves village/Tonttula. Tonttula has lights at yard so it's not the best spot to watch small aurora. 

Other (darker/better) places to watch the aurora are at Levijärvi beach (180' view to north, free parking side of the road):

Here is also second beach next to previous one:

End of the road of Lapastie (not much space, private houses next to the spot. One road down from Glass Igloos):
