hi Dave/John,

that's interesting about the general glow extending towards the southern part of the sky. I didn't really notice that.

haven't really been able to see the picture properly on the forum as there's an amazing amount of reflected glare off my screen here at work and all I see it a very dark image -- I need to switch the lights off some stage and check if that improves things!

Hi John,

I also so it for a duration up to 2.30 am on the 31 August. It was about 10 degrees above the horizon. It had a width position 330 to 030 degrees. My latitude is 53 degrees 55 minutes North. 8 degrees 23 mins west.

Coloration slight pink.

I see you're famous John! Your observation of the aurora was mentioned in a mailshot from Astronomy Ireland ltd. Isn't it wonderful to see such co-operation between two societies in the one area? I thought they wouldn't be so friendly with a society operating on their 'turf'. Maybe you'll get that place at Astro-Feck this year? Without physical violence! :P

I was interested to see the main headline on the cover of this months A&S magazine where Stephen Hawking 'looses' his bet....

I wonder where he set it loose?

:lol: :lol: :lol:
