Fantastic image of a sunspot in this article. Scroll down and then click on image. Difficult to comprehend, a planet sized dark hole in the surface of the sun  horror

Looked out yesterday evening when Aurora Watch were showing quite a bit of activity and others were reporting marginal sightings in Bonn and much more spectacular displays in Finland. Slight green tinge to the sky to the north I wasn't sure about as there were thin clouds as well. Looked out again later and it was completely clouded.

Auroral activity extending further south than normal is more likely around the Equinoxes due to the angular alignment of the solar wind and the Earths magnetic field I think, so keep a look out if you have a clear sky tonight. Might be worth having a camera and tripod at the ready also.


still a crazy old duffer!
