I have enclosed an image of last night's aurora for you. I took a good few images but this one came out the best of them. It was taken at 7.10 UT. 38 seconds at f/2.8 the camera was pointed NNW.

Below is an image I took of the overhead red corona this evening at 18.22UT from my home, I coupled my nikon coolpix4300 digital camera to a tripod with a wide angle lens attached, camera was set at ISO400. Exposure was 35 seconds at f/2.8

The right image is a view from my front garden taken with the same setup. Time was 18.25UT Exposure was 33 seconds. Note my house to the lower right is an alumnus green from the aurora.

This aurora was very bright. Best display I have ever seen under clear skies.
