Aurora in real-time

Here are a couple of realtime videos of the Aurora display on 11 May. Same location as the photos. Turn down the lights for best results. Quality is pretty average. The 6D wasn't really designed for this but you can see what's going on. Ignore the pixel-scale noise - all other movement was real. Yes, it moves that fast.

The FoV is 100+ diagonally.

Enjoy

Wow! they are great! Loved your stills too.

How close is this video record to your naked eye view, in terms of brightness and colour?

Hi Mike, the video sort of resembles the brighter parts of it, visually, although the colours were a lot more subtle in reality, but discernible. As was contrast. What this really does not show is the fainter features, which covered a lot more area and were similar in brightness to the Milky Way, which runs along the top of the frame but isn't really visible in the video either. Crux and part of Centaurus are, though.

Thanks Dave, and you may well catch one. The current solar cycle is far from done!
