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.

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

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

    Just realised that this link is updated each day. So here is (hopefully) the actual version for anybody who has been unable to read it!

    https://spaceweatherarchive.com/2020/01/16/magnetic-explosions-discovered-on-earths-doorstep/

    It believes they have observed a 'near earth'  magnetic explosion due to gusts of solar wind bending the earths natural magnetic  force field and the explosion occurred as the force field reconnected again.  It was accompanied by a vivid Aurora, and is believed to be one of the closest to earth yet recorded

    Further to the discussion about the potential early peak of SC25, have posted an interesting study from 2017 on the periodicity of solar activity and thereby revived a dormant resources thread!
