Northern Lights


This week the Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the Northern Lights, will be turning the skies above the UK a dazzling green.


According to figures from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) the awe-inspiring sight will be visible across much of the UK from around 9pm to 6am over the next few nights.

Ooooh, might try and set up the cam-corder then.  Thumbs_Up

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Re: Northern Lights

Don't bother! Best night was last night. Tonight will be quite low power and visible mainly over Russia.


Edit: Looks as though this is updated in real time so you can check what the current conditions are. Red bands north of the UK are worth a half hour in the garden if the sky is clear.

Re: Northern Lights

Norwegian tourist office claim that one of the questions they get from American tourists is, "When do you turn the Northern Lights off?"
