A clear gap opened up in the E of N at 23.50 BST and I saw a section of the display for over 10 min's. At this time it was type 3 brightness and 20 degrees high to the R of Capella consisting of thick type IIb white-blue bands. It looked like a good display. Sky was too poor to take images. It cleared again here at 03.00 and despite a clear sky down to Al Nath I seen no further NLC activity. Looked to have been at it's best after sunset. Fingers crossed for clear skies and another display tonight.
