This is short footage of latest geomagnetic G2 (KP6) storm, as seen from Caithness in north of Scotland (latitude 58.3 degree north). Storm took place on the night from 27th to 28th of February and was caused by glancing blow of plasma ejected to space by powerful X4.9 Solar Flare produced by the Sun on 25th February.
In this short movie you can see almost all forms and structures of Northern Lights. At the beginning when daylight fades away you can see only arc glow which approaches from the north. Then later you can see homogeneous arc and bands which later spark to rayed arc and bands with rays moving quickly from side to side. And at last you can also see aurora corona overhead flickering as bands of lights comes on and off.
Hi every body
Iranian new year begin exactly at the time of March Equinox and start of spring in Northern Hemisphere. Me and my friend and colleague Amirreza Kamkar start a project about three month ago and it's finished just 2 days before Nowruz! We worked on this project so hard, traveling to different locations for photography and many hours in front of computer for Image processing and editing video. Now it's ready!! we hope to enjoy it

This is last Friday evening inside the dome at the Fort Lewis College Observatory. Most of the evening was spent recording recent supernovae by a senior undergraduate physics student. The longer tracking near the end was of M99, which contained SN2014L It is amazing how many LED lights there are still around once you turn the lights out. Most of the electronics has at least one indicator light. The really bright one that flashes the camera early in the video is on the back of the Orion Starshoot Autoguider.
