Many Thanks to you and Thomas!

As ever, there is still room for improvement, but for the moment I'm 
content with my efforts to model an aurora borealis. The image was some 
kind of a study of concept. Now I try to improve the sky. At the moment 
I use a catalog of the 1628 brightest stars from a VizieR database. I 
project the entries to my sky-sphere. This sample represents the stars 
visible in a severly light polluted city like my living place Darmstadt, 
Germany, very well. The Milky Way is invisible here completely. Now I 
found a database of 120.00 stars published by the European Space Agency 
(Hipparcos-Catalogue). So the next experiment is to try to understand 
this data and to project them at my sky-sphere.

Best regards
