The Changing Seasons

This view across Kilchoan Bay towards Ben Hiant this morning was taken by Kilchoan Early Bird at 7.00am, looking from the slipway below the Ferry Stores.  It shows how the sun is now rising later in the morning, and more in the east.

With the lengthening of the nights we move into the season when we begin to see the northern lights.  The first visible display happened on Sunday night, and was recorded from Mull by Ewan Miles.  His picture looks from Mull across the Sound to Ardnamurchan.

There's a full report from Ewan here, with more pictures and a section about the changes that are happening with the sun's magnetic field, and what that means - it's well worth a read.

Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird and Ewan Miles for the photos.
Ewan's blog is here.
