Last night I spotted – rather accidentally – a strange faint light on the northern sky, over the Moray Firth. I stopped the car, get out of it and realised it was the phenomenon I’d heard about many times but never seen for myself. So I when I returned home I grabbed my camera and tripod and head out to a spot on the shore between Buckpool and Portgordon. It ruined my plans for the evening, but it was worth it!
