Taken on 2011-09-26 at 21.29UT from Tankerton, Whitstable, Kent N51.3 deg E 1.0 deg. Observed from 21.29UT till 01.30 UT next day but saw nothing more except slight resurgence of a red glow for a few minutes around midnight. This was thought to be the tail end of the display, which died down after about 15 minutes. The display was very static. Green very prominent visually, the red rays were right at the limit of visual observation. Image field of view 47deg x 31 deg - KonicaMinolta Dynax 5D DSLR with 28mm f/2.8 prime lens at full aperture, 30sec at 800 ISO.
