Autumn is here

Although beeing fantastic autumn with clear skies which have given us many hours of driving the MG Midget.

Couple of nights ago Jón Baldur catched the Northern Lights.

When on a snow safari in Finland a couple of years ago, we saw them twice, amazing sights.

Is there a scientific reason for them - am I right in saying nobody actually knows why they are caused? I can't remember!

Great piccies - also known as Aurora Borealis. Sadly I have never seen them in the flesh but have studied them quite a bit when I did my degree. Very basically it's caused by electrons(plasma) from the solar wind interacting with the Earth's magnetic fields.

Ok will check it out on Saturday as I will be "home" in UK for a week and the weather forecast for next ten days over here is clear skies and temperature around 10 degrees....... so pure T-shirt weather and we are already in October.
