Aurora above Bass Rock

I have been chasing aurora around the arctic circle with Captain Aurora and gang since last autumn but the weather didn't play ball whenever I was there. I received a call from Reed on Thursday night alerting me the possibility of seeing aurora from the UK! Without thinking twice, I drove to North Berwick which has an open view towards north. I was surprised on how bright the aurora was....I could see the aurora 'needles' with my naked eyes!

 

This is by no means a good aurora shot... but it was a rare scene in the UK.. at least for now :)
