    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.

    Mike Lockwood's theory that a quiet Sun promotes northern blocking and a southerly tracking jet stream doesn't seem to be stacking up this winter. Disappointed ? and tired of working in the rain.

    To be honest from what I've seen, low solar activity may or may not result in Northern Blocking,but eat does tend to happen is the weather gets stuck in a rut of similar weather for several weeks or longer.

    If it's cold it's cold for a while. If it's mild zonal horror, its like that for while.....

    It's certainly been over ridden this winter that's for sure!

    I have heard that the chance of getting cold winters increase at the end of solar minimum as it begins to enter to enter solar maximum, not during it.

    LEAP DAY AURORAS: A stream of solar wind blowing ~500 km/s is gently buffeting Earth's magnetic field today, and this is causing geomagnetic unrest around the Arctic Circle. As a result, longtime aurora photographer Thomas Kast captured his first photo of Northern Lights on Leap Day:
