    Not sure why but I am just getting an error message from your link. I have read of radio activity by aurora this afternoon. (6 metre band)

    EDIT: Tried the link again & now it is working.

    North north east, but you would need to be very lucky to see anything as far south as Gloucestershire, but this is as good a chance as we have had for years

    worth a look if clear sky and not too much light pollution (y)

    Shine a torch upwards, wave it about and you can make your own. Several glasses of brandy beforehand enhance the effect.
