An enormous dark hole has opened up in the sun's surface and is spewing powerful streams of unusually fast radiation, known as solar wind, right at Earth. The size and orientation of the temporary gap, which is wider than 60 Earths, is unprecedented at this stage of the solar cycle, scientists say.

Ooh. Aurora Watch UK has just issued a red alert, suggesting Aurora Borealis may be visible from all parts of the UK - meaning parts of Ireland may be able to view them too. 😀
The UK's Met Office has related info here: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/specialist-forecasts/space-weather
@mudaste Vai ser pelo menos tão forte como uma que ocorreu no inicio de Novembro e deu muitas auroras boreais em grande parte da Europa. Aqui acho mais difícil ver.
@catarinac será que é desta que vais ver?
Hope my daughter and SIL have clear sky for #auroraborealis !
Strong geomagnetic disturbances and Northern lights this weekend. Space weather report by the Finnish Meteorological Institute. Photo taken in Karkkila, Finland #auroraborealis
Last night was a delightfully pointless road trip with @bright_helpings
I heard about the #AuroraBorealis being particularly strong and visible across the UK that night. Aware of the full moon, I cross referenced a map of stargazing sites with cloud coverage to try and find somewhere cloud-free, and came up with Malham, a Dark Skies Discovery Site.
We drove there fuelled by #BBCRadio1 dance anthems and talking nonsense at each other. By the time we arrived, there was a light cloud cover, enough for the full moon to drown out the sky, so there was no chance of seeing the #aurora. Plus it turns out the site is south-facing.
We did see a lovely #MoonHalo, but so did @hag back home while walking Gary! After a while in the literally freezing car park, we headed home. The journey was more important than the destination and it was good to get E out of the house for a while and spend some time together.
Sometimes you just gotta sit on a bench beside the Observatory, eating fish & chips from a favoured chippy (Stefano's on Morningside Road) in a chilly -1ºC under light of a full moon whilst watching the remains of an aurora display as Orion rises.

Looking for recommendations for #tripod and tripod-adapter solutions for my Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro phone, preferably something I don't need to remove my wallet case for to use.
Currently using said wallet case to sort of balance my phone at an angle to capture #auroraBorealis aka #northernLights, but the case itself isn't very solid and only has a couple of angles where it stays in place, and it relies on having a flat surface to place it on.

It had been a lovely November day, clear and very cold. We settled for the evening at our guest-house and watched the sky for any signs of activity. We didn't have to wait long.

And in a special one off, the Northern Lights had a short gig in Hungary:

Woah! I just took the coolest picture ever! 🌠
Popped out to the garden when I read someone's toot about the Northern Lights being visible in Northern Britain. Couldn't see them with naked eye, but long exposure, taken over town, above the hills in the north, showed the green glow...then a plane flew across the Big Dipper 😊

Weather permitting, highly active auroral displays will be visible overhead from #Inuvik #yellowknife #rankin and #Iqaluit to #edmonton #vancouver Helena, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Bay City, #toronto #montreal Montpelier, and #charlottetown and #newfoundland.
It will be visible low on the horizon from Salem, Boise, Cheyenne, Lincoln, Indianapolis and Annapolis.

Another of my all-time favourite photos. I like to use a longer exposure for #NorthernLights, so that more stars are visible. This shot had the benefit of being moonlit from the south as well.
Worth a click to view full size!
A sharp eye might find the navigation lights of a plane.
