  • Aurora Borealis part 2

    A few too many photos to share on the first post, so here’s the second batch! As before, the Aurora Borealis was not visible by eye at the time I was taking these photos – apparently it did increase in intensity overnight, and was visible by eye further south, however I was asleep by that…

  • Aurora Borealis

    I don’t live in the north, so I’ve never seen the Aurora Borealis other than in photos or on tv. Each time I’ve known the Northern Lights have been at a high level, it’s either been cloudy or I still haven’t seen them. …until yesterday! The Aurora Borealis was not visible by eye at the…
