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 ☺

AURORA SEASON BEGINS IN ICELAND: Around the Arctic Circle, sky watchers have been waiting months for this: Nightfall. You can't see auroras without it. In Iceland the wait is over:

Using the Space Weather methodology the solar min is now 801 spotless days - which is the same as the amount of spotless days in the last minimum.

Be interesting to see how strong SC25 is as this will give pointers as to whether this this is just 2 consecutive deep minimums, or the start of a more significant grand minimum.

The method which suggested SC24 would be a dud is pretty sold on both solar cycle 25 and 26 failing (double minimum) however recent forecasts have been about the same strength as the last cycle rather than weaker so i'm a tad confused. At any rate i'm reasonably optimistic.

Looking at the sun it looks like the southern hemisphere is completely dead with massive Coronal Holes however on the northern half there's a chance something could develop although it could just be the remains of our prior sunspots. 

July-August is running around 50% so a drop from previous quarters as things stand albeit the year as a whole should still be on course for about 200 spotless days. 

Thermosphere seems to have warmed over the last week.
