true, we only really good northern lights at 00:45 CET and by that time I was fast asleep (and mist had taken over our area anyway). Turns out it was quite the spectacle though as folks in Scotland & Terschelling (the netherlands) managed to see the lights too with their eyes and subsequently make pics of them
Red northern lights are hard to spot though.
That said, a little tail in the wake of the CME flared some nice lights last night and I was able to shoot some nice pics from my apartment window:
Nothing extreme though, My warning system's pretty good now; I might make a quick trip to Abisko/Kiruna if a warning like this comes early again :)
