Too cloudy in Manchester. Just been up Wereneth Low and there is just too much light cloud

I spent 2 hours last night on top of a hill in mid Wales at 1200ft freezing my arse off looking for that bl**dy aurora. It was a lovely clear night with us, but all I saw was a faint greyish hue, no colour or structure to it. The low down part of the northern sky was definitely not the colour it normally would be and at one point I thought I saw faint pillars, but still grey and that only lasted a few seconds. So technically, I guess I have seen the aurora, but certainly not the festival of colour and light that every other bu**er seems to have seen from an inner city Tesco car park.

My mate txt me from Tenerife to let me know we have a good chance of seeing it in Lincolnshire.

Fog was horrific so not a chance last night, gutted so badly want to see the Northern lights

But you're not bitter, that's good ^_^
