Deeside Aurora aucf14110jhp 
 Scotland Northern Lights display faded winter west north Deeside Aberdeenshire photographed near Kincardine O'Neil on Royal Deeside west of Aberdeen in the evening of 22nd November 2003, 25 miles west of Aberdeen. This followed a major storm on the 20th which with hindsight it was the biggest I have since on Deeside to date, 2018. This set of digital photos were taken from 21.58.03hrsUT for 17secs and these cf141 digital photos were taken at 1600ISO. The 8 photos in this cf141 sequence were taken in the space of about 20mins and followed the cf140 sequence taken in the early hours of the 21st. This photo showing a display dispersed west and interrupted by cloud cover. 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 second 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.

 Aurora Borealis Scottish colours centre red rays treetops west Aberdeenshire Deeside photographed near Kincardine O'Neil on Royal Deeside west of Aberdeen and started in the early morning 21st November 2003, 25 miles west of Aberdeen. This followed a major storm on the 20th and with hindsight it was the biggest I have since on Deeside to date, 2018. This digital photo was taken at 02.58.25hrsUT for 17secs and these cf140 digital photos were taken at 1600ISO. The 7 photos in this cf140 sequence were taken in the space of 5mins. 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 second mark at 1600ISO 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.

 Aurora Borealis Scotland spring Northern Lights waning display rays purple red 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 8 seconds at 21.47.18hrsUT and was my last exposure as it almost disappeared at this stage. The increased ISO sensitivity of modern DSLRís allows for shorter exposures circa 10 sec average times giving more accurate recordings of these moving events.

 Aurora Borealis Scottish display March 1993 spring Cassiopeia purple Deeside Aberdeenshire taken on the evening of 24th March, 1993 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking mainly north from the cottage over a gean tree which is aligned to magnetic North. The faint display started just after 21.20UT with some further ray activity until 21.30 when cloud blocked any further display; some auroral glow which continued into the early morning of the 25th but no further activity observed. The photo was scanned from a 35mm colour slide film, Fuji RSP 11 rated at 1600asa rating using a Nikon FM2, 24mm f2.8 lens wide open at around 20 seconds.

 Scotland Auroral Glow airglow Neuk Crathes Banchory Deeside spring 1990 night sky taken on the Harestone Road from the small pull off at The Neuk Farm which the local farmer used as an area to dump his old hayrake and a few bales of straw. Taken on the morning of 9th October at 00.35hrs UT was observed as a regular occurrence on nights preceding active Aurora displays and the Auroral Glow was described in Neil Boneís The Aurora: Sun-Earth Interactions p112 as against airglow see p147. This was in the days of no Internet predictive sites like Spaceweather.com and the only way I could see displays was to sit on every clear night and watch the skies. This noticeably brighter night sky, rather like twilight that should not have been there at midnight in October encouraged me to make sure of being on site the following evening, in this case at 21.47hrs UT on the 9th when the glow was visible. Activity started around 22.15 with faint beams visible. I have already added other photos taken using Fuji RSP-416 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.

 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. 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. This photo was scanned from a 35mm colour slide film, Fuji RSP11 processed for a 1600asa rating using a Nikon FM2 and usually 28mm f2.8 lens wide open at around 20 seconds.

 Aurora Borealis Scottish display Proton corona zenith explosion red 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. This photo was scanned from a 35mm colour slide film, Fuji RSP11 processed for a 1600asa rating using a Nikon FM2 and usually 28mm f2.8 lens wide open at around 20 seconds.

This display on the 27th March at 21.30hrs UT 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 took this photo of the Aurora display using the Fuji RHP 35mm slide film rated at 400asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 800asa.

This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 24mm/28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 aperture and ISO settings of 3200 which allows for shorter exposures circa 12 sec average times giving more accurate recordings of these moving events. The light conditions were sometimes not ideal because of passing snow flurries but the second burst of activity around 9.30 until nearly 10.00pm was in good clear conditions although cold. It had not been telegraphed from the Spaceweather site which was indicating possible displays caused by the solar wind but likely to occur much further North. During the early stage of the arc developing and going active there were several rays above the viewer but not powerful enough to develop into a half Corona.

During the early stage of the arc developing and going active there were several rays above the viewer but not powerful enough to develop into a half Corona. 
This particular photograph was an experiment using a 50mm f1.8 lens and using very short exposures of 2-5 secs at 3200ISO as there was substantially more movement in this far more compact area of activity however depth of field effect is significant as seen in the out of focus trees whereas in similar views using the 24mm lens it is hardly noticeable.

This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 24mm/28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 aperture and ISO settings of 3200 which allows for shorter exposures circa 12 sec average times giving more accurate recordings of these moving events. The light conditions were sometimes not ideal because of passing snow flurries but the second burst of activity around 9.30 until nearly 10.00pm was in good clear conditions although cold. It had not been telegraphed from the Spaceweather site which was indicating possible displays caused by the solar wind but likely to occur much further North. During the early stage of the arc developing and going active there were several rays above the viewer but not powerful enough to develop into a half Corona.

This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 and ISO setting of 3200 with an exposure time of 10 secs. This is taken looking due North and the green tinge is from low level oxygen gas at Crooktree, located between Torphins to the right and Craigton Hill and Kincardine O'Neil to the left.

 Aurora Borealis photo summer Scottish cottage green Royal Deeside Grampian taken on the 27th August, 2015, 23.27hrsUT at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen and the first display since February 2014. This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 24mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f8 and ISO settings of 6400 which allows for much shorter exposure circa 8 sec average times with hopefully more accurate recordings of these moving events. The light conditions were not perfect as the background light was from the full moon but dispels any myths that Auroraís cannot be seen under such conditions.

 Aurora Borealis February last photo Scottish faint low grade display green rays Aberdeenshire taken on the 27th February, 2014 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen is the first display I have seen this year and the best for several years since the end of the previous Solar Cycle in 2006 although initial forecasts did not suggest a display of this strength was likely over the UK from a glancing CME. It was in fact observed and photographed as far south as Essex in England.

Itís most active phase of the eveningís display was over around 20.30 including a fairly rare occurrence of a folded arc, more common in the most northern regions. This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 24mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 and ISO settings of 3200 allowing for much shorter exposure times e.g. circa 15 sec average times with hopefully more accurate recordings of these moving events.

The first activity photographed of this display was about 19.50, looking west of North to the west of Torphins with this last phase of photography, this particular image was taken at 22.32 with my efforts overall completing then when activity, although continuing until after midnight, was very faint and photography would have little value. During the earlier part of this phase there were pulsing sheets of light thrown upwards from the horizon into the higher atmosphere but as so low level that they cannot be photographed. This went on during low level activity with faint rays with an occasional stronger but briefly lasting single ray.

This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 and ISO settings of 3200 allowing for much shorter exposure times e.g. circa 15 sec average times with hopefully more accurate recordings of these moving events.

The first activity photographed of this display was about 19.50, looking west of North to the west of Torphins, this one was around 21.00 with a new phase building towards the west after the original arc has disappeared and the ray activity continued to the North with red high level oxygen gas colour started to appear more noticeable and a hint of nitrogen gas visible alongside the red of oxygen. This phase sees more individual rays, green towards the northern centre with red rays to the western edges as seen in those with the large trees on the left. The Pleiades Star Constellation is visible in those with the strong red ray on the left.

 Aurora Borealis Scotland photo winter Scottish green rays Deeside taken on the 27th February, 2014 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen is the first display I have seen this year and the best for several years since the end of the previous Solar Cycle in 2006 although initial forecasts did not suggest a display of this strength was likely over the UK from a glancing CME. It was in fact observed and photographed as far south as Essex in England.
