Lads,
Just to let you all know there is a streamer like apparition on the extreme northern horizon, nice and bright. Have a quick look if you can. Its changing rapidly.

I was keeping an eye out here in Cavan but didn't see anything .... mind you my northern horizon is quite obstructed so if there was something going on low down I wouldn't have seen it.

This was very closely hugging the northern horison, right on the edge.
It wasnt spectacular, but it was particularly bright and did fade quite rapidly.

Actually the NCL display returned in intensity after 3am closely following a crescent moon.
