    Northern Lights

    The Northern Lights are visible in the UK tonight, I got a few photos I'm pleased with. Also got a nice shot of Orion over the lights of Ireland, go have a look.

    Wow! Kinda makes it worth living up in the northern reaches.

    So are those colors accurate to what your eye saw?

    Thanks for the glimpse. Been hearing about them my whole life. But never saw it save for one time which was magical.

    Mr D Akey, the photos are pretty much straight out of the camera, the colours are much more muted in real life, it's the long exposure that seems to enhance the colours. It was a fairly mild dose of geomagnetic activity so it wasn't s spectacular display, just very eerie.
