We spent a great evening at the Aurora Night in April. Gary Fildes is an inspirational guide and speaker for people who are totally novices, like us, and for more experienced observers of the skies. We were lucky with clear skies for the first part of the evening and then it clouded over, but there was still plenty of interest for the remainder of the evening, including talks and demonstrations of the telescopes. It was a large group to manage, given that Gary had less help than he apparently would have normally on such a night, but it certainly didn't spoil our fun. And we went away with guidelines to help us look for the Aurora ourselves.
Thoroughly recommended - it was a really good last night to our holiday.
