Overstrand Promenade - hint of Aurora?

Recommended Posts

Currently holidaying in North Norfolk near Cromer, taken a stroll down the promenade for a few night time shots.. I've up the saturation, as I thought I could detect a near hint of something.. but the big old moon is washing out everything, but bit makes for some nice illumination..

So what do you think Aurora or not?

To be honest I can't see anything in these pictures.   But I have seen aurora at kelling Heath once, which is not too far from Cromer.

Thanks Carole, I suppose that's why I'm asking because it's fair t and I've turned the saturation up.. it's a shame, we always seem to come to places like this when there's a full moon out to play, didn't even bring a scope with me.. 

Anyways here where I think is a distant touch of green.. nothing visually, with the moon up it was like twilight..

Geophysical Auroral Institute did show the aurora as active on 23rd and 24th  but only showing down as far as Aberdeen.  

I think what you are seeing is the gradient between night and day sky.  when I saw the aurora at Kelling Heath there was a definite green glow on the North Horizon as well as the few fleeting curtains that we saw.   The green glow persisted well after the curtains disappeared.

I agree - lovely pictures but I think the green is the 'belt of Venus' but resulting from a low moon rather than the setting sun.
