    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...

    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.

    Was What I Saw On August 3rd Really Northern Lights?

    I knew from the news that there was a huge geomagnetic storm from the solar blast on August 3rd. So that night, between 8:30 and 9:30pm I was looking out of my window. In the north-eastern horizon, I saw a small portion of green clouds slowly increasing in size, as if they were...

    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!
