Superb Aurora 21 3 17

The 21 3 17 proved to be one of the best Aurora's we have seen coming to Shetland. First a clear night, that's been a rarity recently and the prospect of a good Aurora tempted us to visit Bigton.

A rare sight in the UK, a pink Aurora (For a short time)

The colours on the night were amazing, anything from various shades of green, purple, pink, even a bit of blue

From the off the Aurora was very active with pulsating pillars and lighter green curtains moving rapidly across the sky

reaching above the green curtains large purple pillars all moving very fast. All these captured at 1- 2 seconds at ISO 6400

I left after 2 hours after it seem to be calming down as it reached 11 pm, but this one will stay in our memories for many years to come. March has proved to be a good month to see Aurora's

More photos to come once i have had time to process them
