Auroras again

Last night Marije and I enjoyed another display of auroras on the horizon:

In my experience, faint auroras like these appear in low-latitude skies like ours maybe 20 to 30 times a year. Catching them in the act is just a matter of keeping an eye on current spaceweather, and having the luck of being somewhere with clear and clean skies.
