- Nice aurora display close to northern horizon starting around 20:30h UT (21:30h BST) and appearing to peak around 23:30h UT (00:30h BST) with vertical rays reaching to 15-20 deg altitude. Display gradually covered by cloud at 23:45h UT (00:45h BST) and the probable true peak of auroral activity at around 02:00h UT (03:00h BST) was largely missed.  Weaker activity seen through to around 04:30h UT (05:30h BST)
