Marsport Observatory's trace for last night, and the red event certainly was happening, with the sky away to the north of us pink with the aurora - but only in the gaps between the clouds. By the time the overcast finally cleared, towards midnight, the event was largely over. If you want to see what could have been, look at the AuroraWatch Flickr group here, on which there are a couple of superb pictures from Milovaig, Skye.
One day this blog will carry a photo of a shooting star falling through a magnificent aurora. And one day Hughie's pigs will fly.
