Northern Lights 'Up North' in York UK Friday

Post by nicspenceryork »

Hi all,
Here's a few taken with my iPhone after seeing a live band and before rushing to bed in excited anticipation of a visit to see Stu Green and his fascinating solar imaging kit! Honestly, nothing happens for months and then a fun packed 24 hours!

Really lovely images Nic. I have the feel of how special this was over York as one of my best friends from Oz (also an amateur Astronomer) and his wife who are in the UK at the moment were by luck staying in York. He rang me as it was happening describing the amazing sight. He then raced to York Minster and took some amazing shots of the Auroral Angel framed with the Minster. There were a number of young ladies there who he showed how to capture with their iphones. He sent me a pic of them excitedly laying on the cobblestones taking pics of this event.

Here is his pic with your "Minster" on Spaceweather https://spaceweathergallery2.com/indiv_ ... _id=207317
