    Picture of Northern Lights

    I've not seen the Northern Lights for over 10 years, mostly due to cloud or full moon or the like, anyway I was along in the shed and saw them start to appear tonight so i shot home grabbed my SLR and got the first picture of them I've ever managed to take! Was really quite something to see, best display I've ever seen here!
    Couple of pictures here:

    You Jammy Bugger!
    That is wonderful, would loved to have seen that. Read in News that they have been visible as far south as Norfolk. Nothing in West Yorks .

    Some fab displays tonight, with some spectacular photos coming from Lewis. In saying that I'm much further south than that tonight and managed to photograph them even with city lights. The display seems to have subsided a little but may not be over yet so if you want to see them get out there and take a look. Find the darkest skies you can and let your eyes adjust to the darkness. There is no point in just glancing out the window as you'll see nothing. The probability is that you will see them in the north and the further south you are the more likely it is that all you will see is a bit of a green glow along the northern horizon but even so it is worth a look.

    With the possibility of a Maunder Minimum coming and with us approaching the end of the current solar cycle this might be the last chance any of us will have to see them in our lifetimes.

    Excellent photos . As you might guess , the northern lights are seen here quite a lot , but I've never seen them with that much red coloration in them, that is unusual .
