Biggest geomagnetic storm in years in progress now. I'm off out.
Once seen, never forgotten.
Thick fog here . Thanks for the alert anyway.
Wandered into park.... heavy cloud cover
Yeah all black here unfortunately.
Clear skys but to much light pollution
Getting very misty here too and the mist is freezing. Nothing yet but a dog turd on my trainers.
Nothing but the orange glow of Leeds and the sound of sirens
Looks like it could peak near midnight, it's long shot though.
A supermoon, solar eclipse and aurora all in the same week, must be sign
....and an exploding meteorite....
It's been a week out of the norm for me. Hows the euromillions prize? I'm feeling lucky.
Some great images from Oregon and other parts......Newcastle sadly not a vivid skyscape..
saw the thread , stood in the garden for ages slight mist , could see stars no aurora though
I went out again at midnight to drive to the top of the hill, the fog was so thick I could hardly see the road. Zilch.
Good old UK weather.
From Kiruna, Arctic Sweden.
A shame none of us saw it on Trek-Lite.
An interesting fact about Aurora's are that they always occur around each Equinox as the earths magnetic field changes. If anyone is urged to travel to go to see them abroad, either leave now or wait for the autumn equinox for the very best chances and head to Abisko.
So near yet so far, Derwent Reservoir last night.
Lovely. I'm guessing that's the Lake district Derwent, not the Peaks Hedley?
There's another (less severe) storm forecast for tonight but it'll not get further south than Northern Ireland by the looks of it.
God's country, County Durham.
Drove by Derwent last Tues' on way to Blanchland for a nose around. Back over the moor via Rookhope and Allenheads.
Aye land of the Prince Bishops Hedley , salt o the earth
Another red alert issued a few minutes ago! Aurora Borealis likely to reach us tonight; http://aurorawatch.lancs.ac.uk/
Cloud forecast here all night in the Midlands.
South west, wales, Northern Ireland and some parts of North west England look like being clear.
Could be on tonight.
Northern Ireland/Scotland/N. Wales/N. England all looking good.
From Barrow looking too Black Combe
Orange alert; http://aurorawatch.lancs.ac.uk/
Scotland/NE/NW/NI. Possible all over UK with long exposure.
