I do know that there is the Aurora Australis that can be viewed in the south but I would think you're too far north to see that. The only two other possible explanations I could find were meteors (which one site did say a green glow was seen in the SW Feb 11 2011) and plasma emissions from the Sun but that's synonymous with Auroras. I'd check around online to see if people further south than you saw a similar sight.

Keep us posted! I'm rather intrigued by this

Hi ALOSTSOUL!

I have some questions for you, if you don't mind!


Is it still there actually?
Was it the first night you saw it?
Would you like to take a look if it will still be visible when the sun will rise?
Is the light constant in its luminosity or is it changing?
No way this could be the Northern lights, as you said it was visible plain South... Plus Nothern lights are rarely visible from London latitude.

Do you have the original photography, so I could try (Nice work from Oneisone BTW) to enhance it too (better to do it on the best resolution)?

yeah no doubt it is strange especially the green I think that is why people are tending towards Aurora activity

there must be something besides a forest in that direction because trees dont normally cast much light on their own.

Actually thats the best parts of it...
Here is the actual forecast...and it does show SE England right at the tip of the lesser viewing area:

I see. I am a touch lower than the edge of the forecast. Still this glow is coming from the South (westerly).

Its still there.

Yes

I will look to see if its still visible when the sun rises

Looks slightly brighter than when I posted this thread but that could be due to lesser cloud cover.

original photography? I took the pictures with my iPhone. I could email them to you if you want.

Looking at the "enhanced" pictures of your pic, and from you saying "cloud cover", I'm assuming here that the area to the south you are looking at has cloud cover?

That would not be the northern' lights, or anything from the sky. Instead, it would be light radiating from the ground and being reflected off the bottoms of clouds.

City lights do this all the time. Also, from the look of your pics, it looks to be quite far away.

Yes! ¨Please do and also try to do another picture with a long exposure.

Do you agree with both your position and the direction of the green glow?



Since I'm actually living in the direction of your view (Brittany in France), I'll see if I can see something up to the North right now.

Edit: could it be reflecting lights on the clouds from Portsmouth?

There is a couple of golf coarses, a few small villages, a few A roads but no major light sources for a while. The only major light source I could think of would be Guildford but that South-East of the glow.

Yes, I would say that is the exact position of where the light is coming from.

according to this site the Kp is very low at 1.33 at the moment while the required Kp in the south of England to view the aurora would have to be 8+

www.swpc.noaa.gov...

could be that the glow is something else???

[strongly resisting the urge to call swamp gas ;-) ]


seriously interesting though!

This is the direction of the glow, from where I am.

There's nothing in your direction visible from my house position, so I assume this is probably a local phenomenom.
It's cloudy here too and there are even sometimes downpours.

Could be but Portsmouth is about 50 miles away and wouldn't I hae seen this before.

I just saw the banner at the bottom of the page switch over and ATS UK & Europe is now broadcasting. Maybe you could hit them up and see if they could put out a call for listeners to "see what they see"?

Just a thought!
