Great aurora show last night - Oct 8th
« on: 09:08:53, 08 October, 2015 »
Really rare to see such a vivid fast flickering show so south (62 North).
Auroras could be seen even in south, so maybe could be seen in UK (?).

Here's some timelapse I took from balcony and my office window.
Could have been shorter time between frames because of the fast movement (now it was 20s).
