Aurora Borealis Jan-Feb 2004


The dog image and the next two rows are from a small display 22/23 Jan 2004.
The rest of images are from a "surprise" display 11/12 Feb 2004. There was no CME known to arrive and also the most probable source - solar wind from a coronal hole - did not give too much hope of a good display. However, before leaving for star photography it was evident from Costello-prediction that there was moderate auroral activity on. In the early evening 17-19 UT the whole sky was full of diffuse and "peculiar" shaped aurora. It is not common at my relatively southern latitude to have auroras extending down to 10 degrees in south. The very last image with reddish aurora glow is from Feb 21/22.
