About this image

One of the brightest displays I have ever witnessed from these shores, was over in 5 minutes, sky was brilliant white to naked eye (not green or pink) with many, many rays. Taken fron two exposures stitched together, not perfectly as left image had slight camera shake. Taken at Knock Airport which is at an elevation of 660ft, great for Aurora but windy. Camera used a 1100D.
