Title: Smoke Signals
Post by: martinastro on February 08, 2009, 05:08:05 pm
At 22.30 last night I was out taking images of the nice Moon halo visible. I heard the siren of what assumed was a fire engine somewhere. I climbed up a hill and looked to the N and seen this billowing black smoke in the fields near the Coleraine road. It was going for a long time. I know that area, on the other side of the tree line is a house in the country...I hope nobody was injured. Haven't heard anything about it since. Here's an exposure and crop.

Oh dear. That doesn't look too good. Martin. Maybe  there will  be something in your local paper tomorrow.
