About this image

This was easily the brightest and most complex display of NLC I have seen in May. I began observing NLC in July 1986.

A short timelapse and some live video can be found here (though nothing moves apart from birds in the live bits) it helps to illustrate what the display was like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrJA0FAvatU
