Biggest Aurora ever?

The day started off well with a call to the south-west being answered by EA8ATG which means that the G-EA8 path has been open for the last three days (yesterday I spoke with Avelino EA8BPX at 18:32) then, after being out a while the mother of all aurora's started. By the time I got on at 15:27 to work HA1A (59a/59a JN87gf) QTF was already 80 degrees and for the next hour qtf went right round to 100 degrees for stations in JN63/JN03/JN25/JN23...absolutely amazing.

Earlier there was AuE to SM2 region very strong but no chance to work that here.

A great 2m DX day.
