It could be on again. Spaceweather . com shows Geomagnetic storm conditions, so going to take 30sec exposures between clouds after dark tonite.

Caught the Aurora on cam with 30 sec exposure, but nothing spectacular. Nothing visible to naked eye as moon too bright.

Hi Peter, I was at Mt Martha and did look out at about 2am but the moon was so bright over the sea I knew I had no chance of seeing it. Should have taken a pic anyway remembering its not always visible to the naked eye. Love to see the pic you did get.
