    They're out there tonight guys! First time I've gotten to see them this year.

    Great bright bluey/whites

    Unfortunately its through broken cloud - hopefully the ****ty cloud clears away a bit more and we get a better look at them later

    But for those of you without cloud, get yourselves out there and looking north :D

    Noticed that after leaving the pub. Friend thought the sun was about to come up and another lad thought it was the aurora,

    Great display indeed with class 4 brightness at times!
    Best display in years IMO. Watched it from 11pm to 3am :)
