What the aurora are called up in this neck of the woods because of the beams of light that dance across the sky.
This was at the peak of the display with strong beams of light reaching quite high in the sky.
Best display of the current aurora season.
This photo was taken on March 12, 2011 in Halkirk, Scotland, GB, using a Canon EOS 5D Mark II.
