Aurora 7Mar94 ab94633jhp 
 Aurora Borealis Scottish winter display green rays purple arc westwards Aberdeenshire taken on the 7th March, 1994 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking from west to north here towards the West over a stand of Arran trees. This was the best of seven nights in a row of displays during one of the most active phases of the 90ís Solar Cycle. This photo was scanned from a 35mm colour slide film, Fuji RDP pushed processed for a 1600asa rating using a Nikon FM2, 28mm f2.8 lens wide open at around 20 seconds. What was unusual about this display was the very distinct folding of the arc giving a distinct curtain effect from the many moving rays, the green colours being from low altitude oxygen ionisation around 20.00hrs GMT.
