About this image

Here is low res mosaic of showing the rise and decline of the Aurora seen tonight. Only a short lived burst of activity, first seen at around 22:20 as a two bright green arcs, the lower being more sharply defined whilst the higher (which reached more than 40 degrees high) was more diffuse. Some banding, rays and curtaining can be seen on the time lapse created from over 150 still frames taken. The display subsided and was only visible as a low dull green arc on the northern horizon by 00:00 UT. This was the first display of Aurora seen this winter.
