Thanks very much Richard.

Another bright display is being reported over the UK tonight again. It's wall to wall cloud here so can't see anything just yet.

Nothing visible here last night because of cloud, but this formation was imaged at 03:43BST on the 13th. Venus and Mars are on the right.

Well caught LL. I got a brief glimpse through a cloud hole and it certainly looked spectacular... then the rain started up again and the hole vanished..

Lovely images LL, I got the same as John, a small hole but it was enough to see it was a major display, it's cloudy now Cry

Here's one of the three images I grabbed earlier of the display in that wee hole, looked to be quite a good one.
