Just a few pics from early this morning at West Sands, St. Andrews  First one was 100iso eq @ f1.8 and 10 sec exposure, strong moonlight about midnight with the faintest of hint of an aurora.

More shots here from Scotland last night. Fingers crossed again tonight as there is another predicted Kp7 ☺

From Salon on the Isle Of Rum & The Isle Of Lewis tonight. Credit; Martin Keivers and Emma Mitchell.

    Correct...X5 Flare last night ! Posted Image

     

     

    X-FLARE! Returning sunspot AR1967 unleashed a powerful X4.9-class solar flare on Feb. 25th at 00:49 UTC. This is the most intense flare of 2014 so far, and one of the most intense of the current solar cycle. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash:http://www.spaceweather.com/

    Thanks gigabite.

    I am disappointed this cycle managed to re-activate itself after the quietness of last summer.

    I guess things should start to quieten down somewhat in the second half of this year.

    STORM WARNING: NOAA forecasters estimate a 45% chance of minor geomagnetic storms on Feb. 27th when a CME from Tuesday's X4-flare is expected to deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field. A dark and moonless midnight sky favors the visibility of high-latitude auroras. http://www.spaceweather.com/

    Seeing that spectacular pic from Hereford, I would have thought that (even with a little light pollution) I should be able to see something..hm. It is wonderfully clear. Perfect conditions too. Such a shame.

    Was at the open-mic at the local tonight, went out for a few cheeky cigs between 10 and 11 but didn't see anything other than Jupiter and Orion, one day i'm determined to go on one of these 'aurora tours' however and see them other than on the telly.
