Glowing Green For St.Patrick's Day! Aurora / Northern Lights

I knew it was St. Patrick's Day...
 when last night just after midnight the sky glowed green over the Methodist Chapel.
It must of been the luck of the Irish as it has been cloudy every night for the past few weeks!

The lights on the horizon to the right Sumburgh & a boat.
 The real trick is walking the hills near cliff tops after midnight...
The Snipe, Oystercatchers, Ducks & Geese where very disconcerting when flushed in the darkness.
The clouds closed in... better luck next time.
