Northern Lights

Holy cow. There’s a massive solar flare going on right now, and the Northern Lights are visible here in Edinburgh, even in town, with all of the city’s background light. Wow. I’ve never seen a display like this one before.

Apparently it’s set to last for another night or two, and the Aurora may be visible quite far South. If you happen to have a clear night, get yourself outside and have a look.

  1. Much though I would love to have taken some pictures, the cameras we have aren’t suited for night sky photography. 🙁 We tried taking pictures of a lunar eclipse a couple of years ago, with thoroughly unimpressive results. And the last two nights have been mostly cloudy anyway, so I haven’t been able to see if the Aurora were still visible…
