Aurora Borealis

Crikey, just a few days ago on January 24th some extremely lucky people around the globe had a chance to watch the incredibly spectacular solar flare storm. Did you manage to spot it from where you are? I read that this phenomenon doesn't happen often and the last aurora show of this scale was six years ago. Oh boy, looks like nature wanted to treat us to a proper fireworks show, doesn't it? I don’t know about you but I’m gobsmacked by it all. Magical. xo

P.S: Solar storm captured in the Great North last year.
P.P.S: Planets through a tiny water drop.
