North­ern lights de­light

Strathearn Herald - - MEMORY LANE -

The dis­play of the Aurora Bo­re­alis wit­nessed in Strat­hearn on the evening of Sun­day last was a re­mark­able and mag­nif­i­cent one, the like of which, per­haps, has not been seen for many years.

For sev­eral hours the north­ern sky pre­sented a con­spic­u­ously lu­mi­nous glow and shafts of light trav­elled rapidly across the heav­ens far into the south­ern sky.

At one point the sky in the north-east was of a bright crim­son hue and seemed as if to re­flect the light of a great fire.

The spec­ta­cle was a splen­did one and, de­spite the cold evening, was wit­nessed by many peo­ple. Later in the evening a fierce gale swept over Strat­hearn and con­tin­ued dur­ing most of the night.

Cri­eff Hy­dro is booked up for the New Year hol­i­days. The num­ber of vis­i­tors dur­ing that pe­riod is ex­pected to to­tal close on 400.

‘Jerusalem the Golden’ was the favourite hymn in many Strat­hearn churches on Sun­day last. The ser­mons dealt prin­ci­pally with the sur­ren­der of Jerusalem to the Bri­tish.
