This Gallery is a selection of photographs taken throughout the 2003 season  sourced from scanned 35mm Provia 400asa slides (rated at 1600) and some digital images using a Fuji S2. Towards the end of the year, we experienced two major and very rare displays over the whole of the UK and these have been given separate galleries as you will see on the Aurora Galleries page.
