Northern Lights..
« on: January 23, 2012, 05:59:54 pm »
As most of you know, we had a fantastic showing of the Northern Lights last night. So I shot off in my car to a dark spot to see it.. I did'nt have my tripod wae me but sat my camera on the window ledge, used the remote on bulb for 30 secs. and took my first pictures of the Aurora Borealis..

As most of you know.. We had a truly wonderful sight of the Aurora.. so I went out last night, hoping to get more pictures..

Unfortunatly there was a lot of cloud cover.. so I contended myself to take pictures in general..

When I was editing them, I noticed one had a gap in the clouds and a small part of the Aurora was showing..



The others..









Thats all folks..

Last night [late sunday night] there was a slight Aurora, three in one week it can't get better [or could it]

There was no gale o wind, so tripods were good, but it was freezing cold, i wore my snow trousers and gloves, so i was quite happy..

The pictures, what a difference from my other pictures..









The next two pictures are the Mossbank Haa [house] pity it was south, it would have been good to set oot the Aurora..

Last night we had an Aurora alert.. but drizzle & mist ruined it for me..

So instead I took a few pictures of the village..

I'll show two pics, taken with two different times. one picture [the darker one] had a time of 4 seconds. the other one had 6 seconds..

A massive solar flare in the sun has happend a few days ago..

So that means Aurora time again. unfortunatly the moon was giving off to light conditions, but I did get these.. [by the way the Aurora was down in Scotland last night] anyone else seen it ?









This last one was looking south.. Of course you don't see it south but I liked the photo..



In photo three there is a white line.. that white line is the Yell ferry timelapsed..

We have had Aurora Borelius every night this week, but only last night was clear to get a photo.. The rest o the time was cloudy and drizzly. I believe it was seen in Inverness area, but it was everywhere..

I'll be checking Ovation Aurora at tea-time if its getting closer [at the moment its off the north Russian coast]

Meantime this is the pictures I took last night..

This was about 8 o clock last night before the Aurora..



Venus & Jupitor..



Then the Aurora came..







I'll be checking the Ovation Aurora later on..
