Missing Aurora

By moiral
Morning all. A couple of weeks ago, there was a forecast that viewing the aurora may be possible. So on a very cold, crisp and clear night me and couple of friends went up the the Cairn O'mount to see if we could see them. Not the only ones with that idea - behing me was like Tescos' car park on a Saturday. Froze until 1230 am and left without seeing any aurora. But did have some fun trying night photography. Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's upload.

You'll never know unless you go.
Would be a sad world if we all sat by the fire in case nothing happened.
Tescos' car park on a Saturday, now there's a thought to ponder on.

I remember that being mentioned on TV the other week, too. A shame you didn't get to see it, Moira, but you've got a lovely night sky, featuring Orion, here - well done! SmileSmile
