 Aurora Borealis Scotland ray Plough clouds 1993 autumn display Deeside Aberdeenshire taken on the evening of 20th September, 1993 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking mainly north from the cottage to left of a gean tree which is aligned to magnetic North. The very faint display started just after 21.40hrs BST with a few occasional beams but extensive cloud interference until 23.35. This photo was taken at 21.52hrs with suggestion of strong ray on the left amonsgt the clouds on the low horizon but nice position of the Plough like a question mark on its side and clearly fulfilling the Big Dipper description more common in the USA and a useful autumn marker for UK Aurora displays. 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.
