    Default I know I should be asleep.....

    But What the Hell is this in the sky - looking North - is it the Northern Lights?

    I didn't see that, and I was out and about at that time!

    Looks like it might be he northern lights, but this is a strange time of year for that kind of thing!!!

    Might be light reflecting through particles of dust etc. I did not see it as at the time I was starring at the back of my eye lids.

    that time of the morning the reddish glow is the sun, setting/rising as at 2.30 it was just starting to come back up, the direction is precisely NNE as looking at the sun right now (12 noon) it is not quite in alignment.

    As we live close to the North Sea, I'm wondering if it is reflected light.

    BTW the Birds woke up at 3.20 am this morning - when the sun started to brighten the rest of the sky some more.

    The moral of the tale - Dont watch Pulp Fiction then try to go to bed - it dont work

    But in 31 years - I have never ever seen the night sky looking like that.

    Cool

    We're supposed to occasionally be able to see Aurora Australis (the Southern hemisphere euivalent of Aurora Borealis) but I've never managed it. I never seem to be in a dark enough place when it's supposed to be visible. But all the photos I've seen look very cool...

    I was wokiing on the runway at Luton Airport and saw this start too at the same time of 2.30 the sunrise did happen at around 4.40 that day. We were all wondering what it was as it looked so weird to see something like that.
