Did anyone see the Aurora Borealis last night? Apparently it was visible as far south as Hove in East Sussex. I will be annoyed if I discover that I might have seen it in North London, but was fast asleep at the time.
Highly unlikely to have been visible around London area due to light pollution, same here in Birmingham.
A few years ago I flew to the Artic circle to see the lights; we had to have all the interior lights off in the plane right from take off in order to get accustomed to the dark. Unfortunately it was a no show, flew around for 2 hours in complete darkness for nothing.
I went to visit some friend who live in Mill Of Minonie and they took me down to the village of Pennan where much of Local Hero was filmed. As well as the spectacular drive down to the village we were very fortunate to see the Northern Lights which despite not being at their best were still wonderful in that setting.
Currently I am getting my own version of the Northern Lights here in Bangkok as the present thunderstorms are something we never see in the UK. Only thing missing is the colours which I don't really appreciate to the full anyway as I am colour blind.
