Attached is low res mosaic showing different forms of the bright aurora seen here at Tarbatness last night. It was first seen around 18:30 UT and was still active at 02:00 UT .There were many active periods within that time frame and the most impressive, an almost explosive event occured around 22:30 UT. Over 1300 frames were captured during the display with two cameras. At times the event was thrilling and somewhat awe inspiring.What a natural phenomena the aurora is.
