Aurora over Scotland (461 files)

Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights displays photographed taken over Aberdeeshire in Scotland since 1989 covering some 350 events with arc, rays, coronas with a wide rnage of shapes and colours
Aurora over Stone Circle SO0213981jhp 
 Scotland Aurora Borealis Orion Pleiades Corona green zenith celestial wings from Tomnaverie Bronze Age stone circle site near Tarland on Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire Scotland to the west of Aberdeen. Unusually this evening of ongoing activity started around 16.00 hours as a major storm on 20th November 2003. This digital photo of a new surge in the display and strong development of a coronal zenith to the south the last of the digital photos was taken at 00.18.10hrsUT for 10secs and these cf139 digital photos were taken at 800ISO, I think I felt the power of the display justified a stop down from my usual 1600ISO setting hoping perhaps for better noise control. In hindsight this was to be one of the last major storms I witnessed on Deeside to date, 2018 culminating for me at Tomnaverie Recumbent Stone Circle near Tarland until after midnight, busy evening and in a sense the most spiritual experience I had photographing Aurora displays. I imagine those in the Bronze Age, without light pollution issues, would have often seen them as well. I had to leave Crooktree at 18.30 to teach at Aboyne where my photography students got dragged out to witness the continuing display and then went from there to Tomnaverie. The evenings’ displays were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film photos started at around 17.40hrsUT. The magnetometer on site showed vigorous activity from 15.30hrs. This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera using a Sigma 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 seconds mark which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays. These were digital recordings taken during 2003 when the quality of digital cameras had at last matched 35mm slide film standards and the noise factor was superior to the grain created pushing 400asa slide film to 1600asa.

The evenings’ displays were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film photos started at around 17.40hrsUT. The magnetometer on site showed vigorous activity from 15.30hrs. This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera using a Sigma 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 seconds mark which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays. These were digital recordings taken during 2003 when the quality of digital cameras had at last matched 35mm slide film standards and the noise factor was superior to the grain created pushing 400asa slide film to 1600asa.

 Scotland Aurora Borealis corona building red green rays dome stone Tomnaverie flanker Bronze Age site near Tarland on Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire Scotland to the west of Aberdeen. Unusually this evening of ongoing activity started around 16.00 hours as a major storm on 20th November 2003.

Aurora over Stone Circle SO0213941jhp 
 Stone Circle Aurora Borealis Corona Orion flanker red ray Tarland Deeside winter Scotland Tomnaverie recumbent and flankers of the Bronze Age site near Tarland on Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire Scotland to the west of Aberdeen. Unusually this evening of ongoing activity started around 16.00 hours as a major storm on 20th November 2003. This digital photo was taken at 22.57.10hrsUT for 13secs and these cf139 digital photos were taken at 800ISO, I think I felt the power of the display justified a stop down from my usual 1600ISO setting hoping perhaps for better noise control but this early exposure is on the short side. In hindsight this was to be one of the last major storms I witnessed on Deeside to date, 2018 culminating for me at Tomnaverie Recumbent Stone Circle near Tarland until after midnight, busy evening and in a sense the most spiritual experience I had photographing Aurora displays. I imagine those in the Bronze Age, without light pollution issues, would have often seen them as well. I had to leave Crooktree at 18.30 to teach at Aboyne where my photography students got dragged out to witness the continuing display and then went from there to Tomnaverie. The evenings’ displays were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film photos started at around 17.40hrsUT. The magnetometer on site showed vigorous activity from 15.30hrs. This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera using a Sigma 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 seconds mark which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays.

Deeside Aurora bnm6445jhp 
 Aurora Borealis Scottish spring display rays colours blue red pink Deeside Aberdeenshire taken on the evening of 27th March, 2017 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen, starting around 21.43UT and was indicated by the magnetometer readings on AuroraWatch. Although cloud was forecast earlier the display happened before the cloud arrived but when it got dark enough to see it. A low grade Arc was visible to the North, beneath Cassiopeia at 21.44, it went active shortly afterwards with faint multiple rays with bright bases on the arc and some lateral movement, North to West and it died down again very quickly at 21.47UT, allowing approximately 10 exposures. Colours not visible to the human eye to the brightness this photo records. Magnetometer suggested possible further activity but by 22.00 there was 100% cloud cover. This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 aperture, ISO3200 for 7.4 seconds at 21.45.30hrsUT. The increased ISO sensitivity of modern DSLR’s allows for shorter exposures circa 10 sec average times giving more accurate recordings of these moving events.

 Aurora Borealis Scotland October 1991 Proton burst corona zenith rays treetops pink red green Inchmarlo Deeside Aberdeenshire taken in the early morning around 00.45hrs BST on 2nd October 1991 at Inchmarlo near Banchory, 18 miles west of Aberdeen looking to the north. An active display and this photo was one of three taken on a journey back from delivering prints for the Deeside Piper in Banchory. This session was a continuation of activity during the evening/night of the 1st October which had started around 21.00hrs BST. I had spotted activity over Torphins and the Hill of Fare on the way to Banchory via Sluie where I saw rays above the forest. Returning from Banchory I saw a strong single beam or ray going straight up over Inchmarlo so pulled off the road at the rough layby just by the speed zone west of Inchmarlo beyond the Craiglash Road. Suddenly this large coronal zenith appeared, swirling around the vortex and lasted long enough for me to take the last three exposures left on the film and then it faded as quickly as it appeared.

 Aurora Borealis Scotland display Proton corona zenith vortex pink red green Inchmarlo Deeside Aberdeenshire taken in the early morning around 00.45hrs BST on 2nd October 1991 at Inchmarlo near Banchory, 18 miles west of Aberdeen looking to the north. An active display and this photo was one of three taken on a journey back from delivering prints for the Deeside Piper in Banchory. This session was a continuation of activity during the evening/night of the 1st October which had started around 21.00hrs BST. I had spotted activity over Torphins and the Hill of Fare on the way to Banchory via Sluie where I saw rays above the forest. Returning from Banchory I saw a strong single beam or ray going straight up over Inchmarlo so pulled off the road at the rough layby just by the speed zone west of Inchmarlo beyond the Craiglash Road. Suddenly this large coronal zenith appeared, swirling around the vortex and lasted long enough for me to take the last three exposures left on the film and then it faded as quickly as it appeared. It has been suggested as being a proton burst which would relate to the single large beam that preceded it. Later activity was photographed after I returned to Crooktree around 01.00hrs BST.

The display was a major storm almost from the start, visible around 11pm and I used my ‘cheap’ fisheye lens, a door security viewer attached to the sunhood on my 28mm by a machined cap. Not of course ideal quality but gives a sense of the scale of the display and especially if viewed seeing the smallness of The Plough. This sequence is later in the display starting around 11.30 when the display grew in strength and the colour red for higher level oxygen came to the fore.

The display was a major storm almost from the start, visible around 11pm and I used my ‘cheap’ fisheye lens, a door security viewer attached to the sunhood on my 28mm by a machined cap. Not of course ideal quality but gives a sense of the scale of the display and especially if viewed seeing the smallness of The Plough. This sequence is later in the display starting around 11.30 when the display grew in strength and the colour red for higher level oxygen came to the fore. An earlier sequence with more green dominance has yet to be scanned. This photo was scanned from a 35mm colour slide film, Fuji RSP 11 rated at 1600asa rating using a Nikon FM2, 28mm f2.8 lens wide open at around 20 seconds.

 Scotland Aurora display rays folding arc waning Deeside rooftops shed Aberdeenshire taken over Banchory itself and was active between 1.30 and 2am on the 11th April, 1990. This display was an hour or so after an earlier display which I photographed at The Neuk between 10.40 and 11.30pm on the 10th. This display developed from pulsating patches of light which I noticed from my house on Station Road next to the East Church Manse around 1 to 1.15am BST and which developed into a full blown arc with very strong rays. What cannot be recorded is the amount of movement of the rays especially when tracking right to left but here creates the curtain like effect with the arc folding to create a horseshoe shape. In the photos the blue colour is of lower level nitrogen gas excitation and with a hint of purple towards the end of the display as against the more common occurrence of red and green oxygen gas. Some of the colour is muted as there was a full moon, the light of which is evident in the brightness of the houses as well as the colour from tungsten lamps from street lights. Of humorous interest is the appearance on bathroom lights while I was photographing in two adjacent houses and neither of the occupants knew a display was underway when I enquired afterwards.
I have already added other photos taken using Fuji RSP11 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 1600asa-pushed 2 stops. They were exposed around 20secs which from experience I had settled on as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye.

This display developed from pulsating patches of light which I noticed from my house on Station Road next to the East Church Manse around 1 to 1.15am BST and which developed into a full blown arc with very strong rays. What cannot be recorded is the amount of movement of the rays especially when tracking right to left but here creates the curtain like effect with the arc folding to create a horseshoe shape. In the photos the blue colour is of lower level nitrogen gas excitation and with a hint of purple towards the end of the display as against the more common occurrence of red and green oxygen gas. Some of the colour is muted as there was a full moon, the light of which is evident in the brightness of the houses as well as the colour from tungsten lamps from street lights. Of humorous interest is the appearance on bathroom lights while I was photographing in two adjacent houses and neither of the occupants knew a display was underway when I enquired afterwards.
I have already added other photos taken using Fuji RSP11 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 1600asa-pushed 2 stops. They were exposed around 20secs which from experience I had settled on as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye.

They were exposed around 20secs which from experience I had settled on as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye. What cannot be recorded is the amount of movement of the rays especially when tracking right to left seen in several of these photos. This display was followed by a similar display on the 21st of the month.

 Scottish Aurora Borealis arc morning nitrogen purple rays May telephone poles 1990 taken on the Harestone Road mostly by The Ley farm entrance tree where there was a useful lorry pull in on a sharp corner so made for safe parking. Taken on the early morning of the 1st May at 02.48hrs BST is one of the many displays in early 1990, a decade which proved to be an extremely productive one for Aurora displays and photography. During the photographing of this display I ran out of film, 3 rolls, so had to return home for fresh stocks-a gap of about 30 mins when I am sure I missed some stunning moments; a mistake not to be repeated and this sequence, 775 was on my return around 02.40hrs at the Ley Tree using Fuji RSP 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa as against RHP 400asa film developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 1600asa-pushed 2 stops. They were generally exposed around 20secs which from experience I had settled on as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens, at maximum aperture, so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye. What cannot be recorded is the amount of movement of the rays especially when tracking right to left. In some of the photos there is a hint of purple evidence of nitrogen gas being excited as against the more common occurrence of red and green oxygen gas. In these later stage photos around half midnight a further very powerful arc developed requiring moving between the right of the Ley tree and just to the left of it with the telephone pole as an occasional focus point. In the latter stages of this display the increasing dawn light around 3.00am started to overwhelm the Aurora display giving the very pink hue as against red oxygen or purple nitrogen gas colours. It was also rather beautiful to see this happening as the increasing dawn light overwhelmed the Aurora display as Aurora was after all the Goddess of the Dawn.

 Aurora Borealis Deeside folded arc purple nitrogen rays poles Scotland May 1990 taken on the Harestone Road mostly by The Ley farm entrance tree where there was a useful lorry pull in on a sharp corner so made for safe parking. Taken on the early morning of the 1st May at 02.53hrs BST is one of the many displays in early 1990, a decade which proved to be an extremely productive one for Aurora displays and photography. During the photographing of this display I ran out of film, 3 rolls, so had to return home for fresh stocks-a gap of about 30 mins when I am sure I missed some stunning moments; a mistake not to be repeated and this sequence, 775 was on my return around 02.40hrs at the Ley Tree using Fuji RSP 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa as against RHP 400asa film developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 1600asa-pushed 2 stops. They were generally exposed around 20secs which from experience I had settled on as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens, at maximum aperture, so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye. What cannot be recorded is the amount of movement of the rays especially when tracking right to left. In some of the photos there is a hint of purple evidence of nitrogen gas being excited as against the more common occurrence of red and green oxygen gas. In these later stage photos around half midnight a further very powerful arc developed requiring moving between the right of the Ley tree and just to the left of it with the telephone pole as an occasional focus point. In the latter stages of this display the increasing dawn light around 3.00am started to overwhelm the Aurora display giving the very pink hue as against red oxygen or purple nitrogen gas colours.

They were generally exposed around 20secs which from experience I had settled on as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens, at maximum aperture, so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye. What cannot be recorded is the amount of movement of the rays especially when tracking right to left. In some of the photos there is a hint of purple evidence of nitrogen gas being excited as against the more common occurrence of red and green oxygen gas. In these early stage photos around half midnight a very powerful arc developed and started folding with rays breaking upwards and also downwards, requiring moving between the right of the Ley tree and just to the left of it with the telephone pole as focus. In the latter stages of this display the increasing dawn light around 3.00am started to overwhelm the Aurora display.

In some of the photos there is a hint of purple evidence of nitrogen gas being excited as against the more common occurrence of red and green oxygen gas. In these early stage photos around half midnight a very powerful arc developed and started folding with rays breaking upwards and also downwards, requiring moving between the right of the Ley tree and just to the left of it with the telephone pole as focus. In the latter stages of this display the increasing dawn light around 3.00am started to overwhelm the Aurora display. During the photographing of this display I ran out of film, 3 rolls, so had to return home for fresh stocks-a gap of about 20 mins when I am sure I missed some stunning moments; a mistake not to be repeated.

I have already added other photos taken using Fuji RSP11 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 1600asa-pushed 2 stops however this particular film was Fuji P1600 which for a short time was their fastest slide film. They were exposed around 20secs which from experience I had settled on as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye.

Aurora Corona ab0055jhp 
 Aurora Corona Red Oxygen Zenith explosion rays Spring Aberdeenshire Scotland taken at 23.25 hours UT on the 6th April, 2000 over Deeside some 25 miles west of Aberdeen. This event is the most major scale of display visible for as the display starts to develop and increase in power it passes southwards creating a moving zenith overhead giving the impression of looking underneath a huge crown often with multiple colours. The shape at the zenith from which rays drop to all the horizons in a 360 degree sweep can create weird shapes which are changing rapidly around the central vortex. This level of display is rare in the UK because the power levels need to be huge and are caused mainly by a CME, Coronal Mass Ejection from the Sun’s surface with the eruption aimed directly at the Earth. It is unusual for the more common Solar Wind generated displays to reach the UK let along push as far south as the Channel although sometimes they can be combined with a direct CME hit and cause large and colourful events.

In some of the photos there is a hint of purple evidence of nitrogen gas being excited as against the more common occurrence of red and green oxygen gas.

Taken after midnight on the 22nd March, this one at 01.12hrs UT is one of the many displays in early 1990, a decade which proved to be an extremely productive one for Aurora displays and photography. I have already added other photos taken using Fuji RSP11 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 1600asa-pushed 2 stops. They were exposed around 20secs and the ray is thus thicker than it is in reality as it is moving from right to left along the base arc and the bright patch at the base is the start of some streaming activity. Also note the faint mauve colour on the extreme right evidence of nitrogen gas as well as the standard oxygen colours of red and green. I found this exposure time as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye. What cannot be recorded is the amount of movement of the rays especially when tracking right to left and also when streaming or flaring occurs with very bright patches starting at the base of the ray and moving rapidly upwards.

Taken after midnight on the 22nd March, this one at 01.10hrs UT is one of the many displays in early 1990, a decade which proved to be an extremely productive one for Aurora displays and photography. I have already added other photos taken using Fuji RSP11 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 1600asa-pushed 2 stops. They were exposed around 20secs and the ray is thus thicker than it is in reality as it is moving from right to left along the base arc and thre bright patch at the base is the start of some streaming activity. I found this exposure time as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye. What cannot be recorded is the amount of movement of the rays especially when tracking right to left and also when streaming or flaring occurs with very bright patches starting at the base of the ray and moving rapidly upwards.

Aurora The Ley au71819ajhp 
 Scotland Aurora Borealis Ley tree dying down red rays winter February 1990 taken on the Harestone Road by The Ley tree to the west of Banchory taken at a corner layby opposite the entrance to the Ley Farm which I tended to use more as it was more convenient and this tree at the entrance gave a very striking foreground. This photo was from one of three films taken on the 16th-20th of February of which this is the 20th February around 23.20hrs UT as it started to die down and was one of the many displays in early 1990, a decade which proved to be an extremely productive one for Aurora displays and photography. I have already added other photos taken during this same display but using Fuji RSP11 film stock so it was a busy night but activity waxes and wanes so there are bursts of active bright displays followed by very subdued periods with little activity, maybe some flashes or a general colour hue in the sky. I took this photo of the Aurora display using the Fuji RSP11 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen pushed the development 2 stops. They were exposed around the 15 seconds sligthly less than the 20secs I later settled on as about the best combined with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens so these are much brighter and more saturated. There was activity on the nights of the 16th, 17th, 19th and 20th and I found during the 90’s there were often displays several nights in a row as later photos will illustrate whereas after 2006 most displays seem only to last one night and often several months apart so a very different Solar Cycle.

These locations became my usual choices for most of the Aurora displays I photographed when living in Banchory throughout the early 90’s, as easily accessible from Banchory and with a clear light pollution free view to the North which meant that any clear night was spent watching the Northern skies for the tell-tale signs of a possible display, usually proceeded by an area of obvious brightness on the evening before the main display. It also gave easy access to Crathes Castle which featured a couple of times as different foreground to Aurora displays.
