    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.

    It Is One of My Life's Wishes

    There are things that I have wanted to do or see since I was a young girl, and most of them I have accomplished.  I am still waiting for my Northern Lights experience though.  I've read about them, and I think I remember hearing that March was the best time to see them...

    I never have, but sometimes day dream about them

    as the sunset lights up my room, or I'm driving and the sun is going down on a cloudy day.

    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!

    I don't like the cold,

    but I would stay in an ice hotel sleep on a bed of ice, just to see the northern lights, the aurora borealis. It is said to be a spectacular natural light show.

    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...
