Over the next few nights, there is a good chance that the Northern Lights will be visible from some parts of the UK, thanks to solar storms which have been taking place. Article here.

This is a phenomenon I have always longed to see, but skies are a bit thick with cloud here in S. Wales, so absolutely no chance tonight; but according to the experts, the Lights could be visible over several nights, so hope someone will catch the show. Good luck. :thumb:

Too much cloud around here also... and probably a bit too far south. Oh well, better luck next time eh? :)

Some spectacular photos in your link Ian; :thumb: isn't it annoying that our skies always seem to cloud over, whenever there's potentially something interesting to see. Duh! :(

Due to the biggest sunspot activity for 4 years this was a real chance..unfortunately it would not have been seen south of Scotland, The sun is reaching its 11 year peak of solar activity :sleep:..in other words it is waking up :D
