Hoping to see the northern lights last night after a pretty strong solar storm during the day, but it didn’t last. The Kp went from 7 to 3, and the interplanetary magnetic field was mostly north. If the field isn’t south, there is little chance of seeing anything decent. Especially at lower latitudes.
Sunset on 12 May 2021
Mercury and a very young waxing crescent moon (1.2% illumination)
Some cliché star trails…
