Aurora – 7th of October 2015

I’ve not seen many posts on here for a while so though it would be best to contribute and hope that others continue to do so as well.

Sharing a few photographs of the strong Aurora that came visible to Kendal on the 7th of October 2015.

I heard about a Coronal Mass Ejection from the sun heading for us and it was a big one! So following the Aurora Watch UK iOS app, worked out that I needed to be on top of a hill with a good dark area to see it so I headed up onto the Golf Course. Straight away I could see it, a super long arc of green so I posted to the social networks in hope that others could see it as well.

Setting up my camera I had a good eye for a nice star trails shot.

One of my friends made it up to the golf course as well in time to see the Aurora dance, so beautiful to see with eyes instead of the camera. Hoping to see it again soon.

Here’s a few photographs from the night and a time-lapse video as well.

Thanks James
