Aurora photographed from my garden, West Linton in 1992. Right of centre at the bottom is part of the constellation of Orion. Just visible as a tiny smudge two thirds of the way up on the right hand side are the Pleiades (M45). Out of curiosity, I recently overlaid it onto an astro software skychart (2nd pic) and it matches exactly for December 1992.

Scan from Ektachrome 35mm colour transparency.
