The clear evening of Wednesday 7th October 2015 saw the Northern lights over Scotland more intensely than usual. Central Scotland also saw the phenomenon known as aurora borealis and Blantyre was no exception. Some kind people have sent in their very excellent photos, which of course are possible if you have a camera with long exposures.
I’m sorry to say, i wont be posting my photos from my phone, which looked like a dark sky, despite a green colour dancing over Priory Bridge from my vantage point in High Blantyre. Well done to Ally Reid and Paul McGowan for sharing these.
