A message from our Astrophotographer Rob Nolan of RPN Photography


Northen Lights alert! Tonight and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday nights 10th & 11th May 2024) could be rather spectacular, with Northern Lights being visible across the entire UK! I took these images of our Sun today and you’ll see the large group of Sunspots towards the bottom. These are responsible for some huge CME’s that are now bound for Earth and due to hit Friday evening, bigger than anything seen in a very long time! The weather forecast looks good with clear skies and next to no moon, so do go outside after dark and take a look north, and let your kids stay up too! This could be one of those very rare events! I’ll update Friday evening if things are looking good! 😬
