Aurora Borealis

Fantastic Aurora Borealis last night. The first one I have seen this year. A big thank you to Glendale Skye Aurora App which sends out alerts when there is an Aurora.

across the ebony sky,

Aurora lustre”

I observed an amazing dark sky from the nature reserve last night. A perfect view of the stars with the naked eye but, unfortunately not with the camera lens(used stock image) When I turned off the torch I couldn’t see anything, it was totally pitch black. There were no street lights and no orange glow in the sky. While watching the stars I could see satellites orbiting.
