Most people saw their first aurora on this date! It was the best display in decades, reds and greens were visible to the naked eye and the arc went as far south as Pleiades and even Aldebaran, the Plough was behind the aurora most of the night. By 2200hrs the sky was rippling and dancing.
Aurora Borealis is often seen in the Moray area especially in the darker winter months of the year. This is due to the low level of light pollution, a great northern outlook and generally on the whole dark clear skies.
