Aaw, you missed it when it happened in Dunfermline five or six years ago then? Thats the only time I saw it til I came here. It's still engraved on my memory, and the one I saw here in summer was very dim compared to that one.

Capturing the Aurora

Heyas all, long time no speakee. I've been silly busy with work this summer, but after going to the cinema to see Harry Potter, I saw the aurora on the way home in the middle of summer  :shock: I just about drove off the road in my surprise. It was July 21st and I live far enough North that we ...

Oh not with a scope, I just mean with a camera. When I came to Canada I brought only a suitcase, everything else I left behind. But the skies are so clear here and you can see sooooo many stars, its unreal.

Canadian Skies

Hey guys and girls :) Some will remember me (The earlier members), some wont. My plans to travel Europe fell through, but I am now in Canada. The skies where I live are so unbelievably clear, you can see so many starts and even the edge of the Milky Way trailing across the sky, which I only ever saw...
