I've probably had a few 'near misses' where its been visible (but obviously nothing like last night) and i've been at work or asleep before work.

 

I've never been on an 'aurora trip' or anything but have often thought about it.

My son went to Lapland last year in January, but never saw a thing as it was clouded out.

He had a look last night with me, but like his mum, was fairly non plussed. I had to remind him we're in a Bortle 7 zone !!

Yes fingers x'ed, but i'd be amazed if it was anything like last night.

The aurora app had been  in 'the red alert mode' for nearly 18 hours with a record high for me of around 1450nT !

But its currently dropped down to 167 nT so the best of it may be over.

Most excellent Rob. Meanwhile in Worcestershire I did notice that the sky was unusually bright on the 10th, considering I'm in the greenbelt. There were no real colours for me, but I'm guessing what I saw was aurora related.
