aurora borealis over Dunecht, Aberdeenshire, Scotland

The aurora borealis outside Aberdeen tonight. When I arrived around 2130 there was intense green clearly visible to the naked eye. It slowly faded and then at 2215hrs suddenly erupted. The sky lit up and rays shot up for a couple of minutes, but that was it. Despite cars passing and a couple of fumbled lens changes I got a shot but as usual didn't get the chance to stop and enjoy it! The action is by no means over tonight and there is possibility of more over the next couple of nights.
