Aurora Borealis

Post by Kitkat on Mon 23 Jan 2012 - 19:03

A series of powerful solar flares, which began erupting from the Sun on 19 January, amplified the Northern Lights between 21 to 23 January, making them clearly visible in areas of Scotland, Northern Ireland and England. The coronal ejections were caused by solar storms in Region 1401 of the Sun, and if they continue, could create similar scenes in the northern regions of the UK and western Europe over the coming nights.

Anyone here lucky enough to see anything?
