Don't anyone mention cloud!  Angry

In true fashion cursed cloud appeared just before sunset.  However, the auroras were there - I could see the outline of the moon through the clouds and also at times the eerie green glow at its brightest shining through the veil of cloud(!!!)  If it had been clear it would have surely been a sight to behold.  Tonights weather is 'inclement' to say he least - howling gale and snow / sleet / rain simultaneously.  I actually quite like it in a strange way - can't beat a nice bit of extreme weather!  Here in Iceland the auroral oval is never far away so will be out there observing whenever the clouds part - i'll also be taking pictures when the wind drops as at the moment it would send the camera and tripod clean over.

Clear skies to you all! Smiley
