Started at about 1:00pm, lasted till about 1:30. Inverted crescent, centre right, expanded up and right. Right eye's feeling a bit weak and blurry right now.

First one for a while. Aura started at about 8.10 this morning, a degree or two to the right and below my centre of vision, expanding out up and right, just now reaching the edge of my vision. I think it'll be gone in a minute or so.

Edit: Ooh, that's unusual: got a second one, started the same place as the first, at about 8.55. This one's expanded down and right, and broke up fairly quickly and is largely gone 15min later.

Edit2: Aaand a third! I hope that's it, I could do without a permanent kaleidoscope effect in my vision. Started about 9.50ish.

Think I'll go out for a walk, avoid artificial light and LCD monitors for a bit.

First of the year. Started about ten or fifteen minutes ago, currently arcing horizontally across my right side field of vision. No particular pain, besides a slightly aching back from sitting on the funky stools they have at the library these days. Eh, touching my centre of vision now, making reading a bit difficile. It'll be gone in another ten minutes or so, I expect.

Started after I came out of the Star Trek movie. I can't watch movies with shaky camera work any more, and especially ones that spazz about during action scenes. Felt a bit dizzy when I got out of the cinema, bent over and when I was walking away, there was the aura. About 5° across, right side of the visual field, moving slowly up and out to the right, looking like a cubist aurora. Very pretty colours, but a bit distracting.

Unusually, I have got a headache with this one, but I think that's more down to the movie than the migraine.

I think I really should take this to the doctor. Probably won't be able to do anything, but still....

Been having an aura for the last half-hour or so. It started just after I got out of the car after driving up from Bristol. I walked from the car-park to the all-night supermarket, and as I crossed the threshold, I got hit by a wave of dizziness, and had to bend over for a few seconds. A minute or so later I noticed quite a sizable arc of zigzagging going on in my right visual field.

It's followed the usual course and moved up and out to the edge of vision and disappeared, but a little snarl of it seems to be caught around my right-eye blindspot, which is mildly annoying.

Last one I had was about eighteen months ago, around July 2007, and this is about the fifth or sixth I recall having in about 15 years. They've all been aura-only phenomena, more distracting than anything, but I might mention this one to a doctor, I think.
