2nd March

Hi everyone,

well as usual went for the Northern lights on Tuesday night and was 24 hours early. Predictions did say Tuesday night but were way out, although there are some great photos from the night after flying about on Social Media as always i’m gutted. The only consolation is that there was a bit of sea fret so no one else would have seen it that night either if it did reach this far south.

 

Anyway here are todays sightings from Alan Whitehouse for the local patch.
