There was a faint aurora on 20141001 visible at Tarbatness. Denis reports that the sky was quite hazy so the definition was not great. He shot about 20 frames between 22:00 and 23:30, after which the sky was too heavily obscured by cloud and haze at the horizon.  This is one of the best frames, which also includes a bright meteor and a satellite/aeroplane trail taken at 22:27 UT with a Canon 1000D+Samyang 14mm f2.8 lens 45s at ISO 1600.
