We went to Runswick Bay, did a few test shots and nothing doing so left camera snapping away as a couple of planes flew overhead. This series of 25 shots makes a small star trail.

So I decided well I'm up and there was enough sky showing for a star trail, so went onto the cliffs south of Whitby. Set the camera up, and left on continuous shooting and retired to the car.
Around 3 am, although very cloudy there was a light show dancing in the sky.
17 seconds watch full screen.
My first Aurora Borealis & first time-lapse.
