Aurora watch amber alert 17-03-15

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the heads up. Good luck, aurora hunters! We are properly poorly here but will stick the head out the door a few times.

Low cloud and mist here, but will keep looking outside towards midnight, just in case; the great display of April 2000 (with the whole sky covered with aurora even down here in the Thames Valley) seems a very long time ago now!

Only time I have seen it was at Kelling Heath star party. Thought it was stadium lights pointing up or something at first and thought the imagers would be really annoyed. Until someone pointed out the sea was that way :embarrassed:  :laugh:

Conditions getting worse here.

It's clear here but no aurora visible as yet. Jupiter looks good though :smiley:

It's not brill here but the new street lights help a lot... They have doen quite a few more streets around me with the new LED lights making a big difference

Trying out the  full spectrum 7D with the 200/2.8 at the moment but will keep the 5DIII and 24-105 Handy as well...

Thanks for heads-up. Cloudy here in Cambridgeshire but I've let my folks in the north-east know.

Just a quick Rough... Not the spectacular shots we see from further North but just glad to see  and capture them from closer to home :)

They were brightening a bit as I left - or my dark adaption was getting better as the traffic got quieter...

I had to drive up into the Brecon Beacons to get above the mist and get a Northerly relatively LP free horizon...  I think the army are out on Epynt as what looked like a couple of flares went up...

Glad I did :)
