Tonight was a strange one weather wise and space weather wise.
The Bz numbers would fluctuate as they do, from a locked magnetic field, to an open one, with small -Bz gap and high +Bz lock .
Nothing unusual, but the timing of both the Bz- and the Bz+ was not fitting in with the gaps that I need in the sky.
When magnetic field was open,
I had heavy snow clouds, when closed, I had a large gap.
So it was quite confusing at first, for my guests to take in, but once the sky cleared and I could see the stars again, earths magnetic field would start to play along with me for a change.
And this was giving me some time to catch the aurora that danced above in between the gaps that were appearing while the magnetic field was open and everything was going my way.
Never the less I managed to catch these images once the heavy snow clouds had passed.
The purple and pink nitrogen gases where making a brief appearance as the aurora danced the night away.
The red streaked lights are made, when a truck, car or bus drives by, in stead of cursing because the traffics busy, you should use the traffic as a prop, as the effect can sometimes be breathtaking.
