The northern lights, Saskatchewan memories, got a lot o’ livin’ to do, ten months of semi-retirement but still a box to tick, mentoring in Oswestry

I never realised until Monday, that the northern lights had been visible from my wider area the night before.

There were some really good photographs on social media and with the natural display continuing on Tuesday as well, I went out myself.

Unfortunately though, it wasn’t a totally clear sky, especially in the direction where the lights would have been.

My wife and I walked to the top of the valley and leaned against a gate looking out across the horizon.

We didn’t see anything but there were several muntjac calling from Baggeridge.
