I'd love it to be correct, especially as skies are clear here in Northumberland where I am visiting. However the aurora forecasts are so poor that I am going to do my bit to increase the chances by heading back south

All quiet at Dunstanburgh Castle. Maybe I had something earlier. Or maybe it was light pollution. Cold

kp remained at 3 or below through yesterday. Pity - would have been great to see UK aurora, and it has happened (in 2012 I think).
We live in hope....

Stars and sheep. No aurora. Taken at the time of my quoted post. I gave it up as a bad job at 1 AM

No couldn't see Berwick. It was Seahouses. From my vantage point for the 2nd shot. I could see Seahouses and the Long stone lighthouse on the Farnes
