Last night/this morning (8/9th Oct. 2012) seen a beautiful aurora display over Ireland and indeed rest of the more northerly portion of the globe. After the short bright summer’s nights it was fantastic to stand under a rich, inky black autumn sky watching to the “Merry Dancer’s” return to the sky. A meteor even sliced through the field of view of one of my exposure. Yet another rewarding night under the stars.
