The sky at night (meteors, Iridium flares, the moon)

Managed to catch a bright-but-brief flare up of the Mirrie Dancers at the back o tea time last night. Apologies for the poor quality but I was really just nippin oot for a look and they went mad in the space of about 90 secs.

This was a 28mm lens and shows probably about a third of the display that stretched from NW to NE.


Headed out for dark places to try and get some proper shots but it all seemed to fall away to a background glow in no time.








Looks like there's a reasonable chance of more lights over the weekend, so have a look to the skies if you're out and about.
