Northern Lights in Dublin
This is a super quick post, I literally just took this shot only 10 minutes ago and I want to go to bed!
However my good friend Kathryn Marsh sent me a text a short while ago to say she had spotted the Northern Lights in Dublin and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to catch them so far south.
In the dark I grabbed my decent camera, stuck it on Auto and shot with the flash off. This is the best picture I caught.
Have you managed to see them? Did you get a picture? Do please let me know. I am beyond thrilled to get this shot!
Wow! I didn’t think that could happen. Amazing!
I’m over the moon! What a special moment in time.
They appeared one night just as the Dublin commuter train came in at 6.00 – station car park came to a complete halt as all the jaws dropped simultaneously!
I’d say they did. My only regret is that I wasn’t up in Naul because I’d rather a shot over the Mournes!
Yes – wondered whether to risk jumping in the car and heading up to Four Knocks
It’s gone now but if we get it tomorrow (slim chance given the forecast) I’ll be heading up to the out-law’s. Will buzz you if I do!
Sign up for NASA sunspot and aurora information and they tell you when a CME’s heading our way – There’s an aurora halo predictor
Great idea. Thank you. Mind you I get little enough sleep as it is!
Sorry – didn’t say where – spaceweather.com
A different sky show the last two nights – noctilucent clouds just after sunset. No sign of them tonight though
I’ve been working late both nights so didn’t get a chance to get out with the camera. Maybe tonight.
