Looks fairly strong frmo Dublin too. Unfortunately I'm just glimpsing it through cloud. Looks like I can put the video camera away for _another_ night...

Largely clouded out here but I ran the camera from 1100 to 0100 BST and got some reasonable frames at the start and finish. I need to find a better location for the camera though as it picks up loads of street lighting :-(

I saw that one also on Wednesday night/Thursday morning between large breaks in the cloud (yet, it was actually raining over my head). This morning at 02:30hrs was an even more impresive one. Did anyone else spot it? Only had an altitude of less than 15 degrees, but is spanned the entire west to north skies. Contained some vibrant colours such as orange and blue as well as silver... :)

...problem was, when I got home some minutes later in Daingean, it was completely fogged out, so no point dragging out the camera!
