AuroraCam Images

Near-realtime view from our Auroracam. The camera is a barebones IMX307 connected to a Raspberry Pi which is running a simple script to capture a frame every 2 seconds and create a realtime image of the sky. The IRblock filter has been removed to improve low light sensitivity and the image then adjusted to bring the colours nearer normal. At dawn and dusk, the camera settings are changed to compensate for sky brightness. The image is auto-refreshed every ten seconds though due to cacheing there may be a 30 second delay in actual updates.

The data are also used to make night time timelapses which can be checked for auroral and noctilucent cloud activity. The archive is here.
