    Saw Them In The Autumn Of 2010

    It was around October or November of 2010 that my husband & I saw them for the very first time- two nights in a row, and we live in Ohio. The sky was pretty clear & the air was cold. We were coming home around 9:00pm & saw something odd in the sky. It was a bright pink color...

    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!

    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...

    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.
