Gisli, your pictures have enormous emotional resonance for me.

Living aswe do, down south (53degN)near Chester, England, I have seen the Aurora Borealis but once, at Easter 1984, in N.Scotland. My daughter, now about to qualify as a doctor from Edinburgh University, age 23, was then 7 weeks old, and it was her first holiday. We went in convoy with my wife's parents, in our pair of camper vans.

Parked for the night in a lay-by looking out to the Summer Isles, near Ullapool, NW Scotland, I woke in the night, and saw a faint, white flashing over the northern sky, resolving itself into the characteristic auroral 'curtains'. I woke my wife and she gazed at it with me in wonderment.

I got out and woke the in-laws, by tapping on the side of their van to show them the wonderful sight. I have always peered out in the night, wherever we have been, to look at the glorious night sky; they (now very elderly and infirm; then very fit indeed) have always closed their blinds tightly every night, so my attentions were very unwelcome, however rare the sight!

It was a remarkable holiday: there was a heat wave. We had expected to have trouble keeping our infant daughter warm! The problem was keeping her cool; she travelled the countryside in a baby carrier on my front, with a knotted handkerchief on her head to protect her from the sun. We laid her down on my waterproof jacket when we stopped on our walks amid the superb scenery, and were horrified on one occasion to see an adder, Britain's only venomous snake, squirm past her as she lay in the bright, warm sunshine.

So the more auroral images you post, the better, so far as I'm concerned.

Best wishes
Alan T
