Chesterton Windmill Nightscapes

Apparently, on 9th January 2014 there could have been the rare chance to see the Northern Lights from the UK, from as far south as the Cotswolds. After keeping a look out on various websites for Aurora alerts, it wasn’t looking too positive but I decided to go and take a look for myself. So, at about 12.30am I headed out to Chesterton Windmill – I thought the windmill would be an ideal location as it’s out of the way of most of the light pollution from the towns and adds great foreground interest.

I stayed out until about 2.30am but didn’t see any sign of any Northern Lights. However, the sky was incredibly clear and the moon was bright so I decided to take the opportunity to take some pics of the windmill against the star filled sky.
