Close Encounters of an Aurora Borealis kind
With the recent spate of now well known solar flares producing some spectacular
images of the Aurora Borealis off the North Coasts of everywhere , I thought I
should really investigate and with always having an interest in the night sky, I did just that.
With a late call made after the spectacular St Patricks day display I made my way north
with fingers crossed and warm clothes at the ready - to be greeted by darkness.... ......
Wonderful darkness and clear skies ...but no visible Aurora ! So with the capacity of
modern digital SLR`s I set up and took a test shot ..and discovered a wonderful display
in progress - just beyond the human eyes ability to see. So a number of shots were taken
to produce a composite shot of the larger skies and the display of colours that the Aurora was
producing....I feel this could become a bit more than a minor thing in the coming months and
