    Mesmerising

    I have seen them in Scotland. They were mesmerising. Everyone should have the chance to see them, especially from beautiful surroundings. We drove to a lovely spot and had a night time picnic. It was a magnificent show of nature.

    Would Really Love To See Them And Take Some Great Pictures Of Them

    I think I saw them once when I was in Northern Ireland - but I really wasn't sure as the person I was with didn't know - but it was brilliant in the darkness on the ocean under the moon .. so I want to see them and be sure and have evidence that I saw them!

    Seen Em, Wanna See Them Again

    I've seen them as far south as North Dakota and as far north as the Alaska/Yukon border and a few places in between. There a spectacle no matter where you are yet completely different in each place, from full on dancing distinct light patterns to a dim gradually changing color in...
