    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 ☺

    AURORAS IN THE USA: As predicted, a solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field on March 13th, sparking a G1-class geomagnetic storm. Northern Lights spilled across the Canadian border into the USA:

    Been wondering about this thread. Read for a while from the start but for the uninitiated the football score reporting of many of the posts with no comment or observation makes it rather obscure concerning what is going on. Is it possible for someone to give an updated review concerning what is going on and potential both good and bad in the future.

    This thread http://skywavesdx.org/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=7925 will give some information. Wikipedia and other sources can also give more info.

    As for the effect on the weather - some are of the opinion that low solar activity = more blocked / colder winters. I'm not convinced, personally.

    If anyone has any more questions, I'm happy to answer them.
