Oh, sorry not mentioning.

I live in Andoya in Norway, 69deg north, so pretty much in the sweet spot for aurora :)

We've had an amber alert here, via Lancaster Uni.

I doubt we'll see anything this far South.

I think the local forecast was saying clearly visible to the mids of Norway, or about 62 degrees north. From what i could see the most intense was straight above or just slightly south.

This was probably the first time I have seen hints of blue with bright red colors. I`ll find my camera tomorrow and head out if the forecast looks good....
