Northern lights

The Auroura showed pretty well this evening at about 10.50 in the northern sky. Unfortunately I hadn't practised any night photography, this is the best I could do.

We'd missed a good showing in the summer and only seen it not very well once in the spring. The brightness in the sky was very impressive and the speed with which it changed was surprising. Locally it's called the merry dancers - because the light dances in the sky presumably, quite an apt name nonetheless.

I'm jealous!!! Like many people, that is very high on my 'things to see before I die' list.
