    It Is One of My Life's Wishes

    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...

    Seen Em, Wanna See Them Again

    I want to see the Northern Lights

    because of a recent book I read, called "Let's Get Lost" by Adi Alsaid. My favorite excerpt was: "The real story about the Northern Lights is this. Thousands and thousands of years ago, they didn't exist at all. This was back when people all over the world lived really similar...

    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 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.

    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.
