Re: March a good month for aurorae watching

That’s a stunning scene, Brian. I’m envious. Love the sky getting darker and the auroral effect gradually beginning to appear, building to a crescendo.

Re: March a good month for aurorae watching

I'll keep a watch on the skies. I've only ever seen a weak auroral display once from my location. It would be fabulous to see.

There's a useful alert/news Twitter account: https://mobile.twitter.com/aurorawatchuk

Re: Yesterday's Sun ie 28th February

Cliff, the SpaceWeather Archive Image, for the 28th Feb, shows the location of Active Region 2804.

Your third image does look to have some granulation - but I’m not sure of the orientation of your image compared to the one linked to on SpaceWeather.com.

Re: National Star-count Week

I had a try during the count week and hit an abysmal four - the sky conditions were poor. Ill have another check, out of interest, when the Moon has waned.

I like the sound of the 9x63 binocular, Nigel.

Yes, fabulous sight isn’t it. It reminded me of when Venus passed not too far from the Pleiades last year.
