Lots going on in recent days and nights...lightning, auroras, snow etc. Here's a nice mammatus display which passed over at the rear of a snow squall, these are at 18mm so the 'udders' were very large. Also two night shots taken while watching aurora and waiting for clear periods in the N, then some snow scenes from Sat, followed by a distant flash of lightning and aurora at the same time, the cloud is lit up from within from a cell over the Atlantic Ocean viewed from Maghera, it lit the ground up at my feet.

Thatís a very impressive shot of the dramatic looking mammatus clouds Iíve never seen a display that compares against the scale of these before. And back to the wintry scenes its crazy to see this amount of snow again in the month of March, I like the regimental looking sheep image looks as if they are awaiting some fodder from you. Great aurora images too Martin.

Thanks
