Have you seen the Aurora Borealis

The UK has been very lucky over the last few nights that those living in the right areas of
Britain have experience something that I would love to see ..the spectacular Aurora Borealis.

Of course many people book a cruise whether it be to Alaska or Norway to try and get the
best views of Aurora Borealis, but of course there are never any guarantees as the ingrediants have to be just right to set off this spectacular display.

But for those living in the UK over the past few nights, they have been able to witness what normally only a priveledged amount of people can see.

If you are out and about tonight here is a list that has been compiled of places that may offer you the best vantage point to see this one off experience.

Also Lancaster University have an Aurora watch website may be worth a look to see where there have been sightings http://aurorawatch.lancs.ac.uk/
