Extreme solar storm and aurora


Recommended Posts

I saw the aurora for the first time in my life last night. The solar storm activity has been the strongest in the last 20+ years in the last 24 hours. If you are at latitude 40+ degrees and have clear skies tonight you are likely to be able to see it with just your eyes.

I shot some photos using a tripod, wide angle lens, manual focus at infinity, ISO 200-400, f3.5, exposures between 5-10 seconds. Processed in post in Darktable to bring up the colours to a nice balance and dim the lights of Penzance in Cornwall (UK).
