A Strong Visual Aurora at my location in Scotland - The antennas are illuminated by nearby sodium street lighting.

Photographed on 24th March 1991 at approx 23:30 UTC using 200 ASA film, 50mm lens, f1.8 with a 10 seconds time exposure with a Canon FTbn SLR.

The photograph on the right has appeared in a few RSGB publications, but not however in colour and actually looks as if it was taken in daylight in some publications!

I now have a Sony Alpha 100 Digital SLR with which I hope to take some good photographs of the Aurora.
