Default Aurora

Just South of York I've been out catching a few Geminids through the broken
cloud, and saw some auroral activity in the gaps, rays and some bands from
time to time. Saw 3 bright meteors and one slow, slightly orange one, which
broke into 4 fragments at the end of its path from Auriga to Cassiopea.
Very nice :-).

Clouds are forecast to get worse with rain later tonight :-(.

I'm afraid the cloudy skies are my fault. I took delivery of a 10"
Lightbridge yesterday. I predict clouds for a month at least now... :-(

it has developed into quite a big storm,
Kps in the 7 to 8 region (Costello)
Auroral oval into Scotland

time !)
