Re: Moffat Aurora

That's a fantastic sky!

Aye, but the view from my garden is less inspiring with the pylons and lights ! The trouble with this year's aurora is that the ones which have coincided with clear skies above Moffat have (mostly) been rather fleeting affairs. Wednesday's (at KP 4-5) was mostly only a glow for a few hours and the rays above were visible for just 5 or 10 minutes at most. My aspiration (on a night when the aurora is forecast KP 6-8) is to capture a similarly aurora filled sky against a more striking foreground, not by going to the Arctic Circle, but staying locally. There is an old ruin 15 minutes walk from the house and its silhouette (perhaps with a hint of flashlight) would make a striking foreground, and even better if snow was lying on the ground.
