  3. I wanted to but there's a lovely mix of mist and cloud which makes seeing anything highly unlikely!

    same here, but am hoping for a clearing of the skies

    Same here, the sky has been at an altitude of 30 feet all day.
    Many years ago I lived in St, Andrews when there was the best display for about 20 years, unfortunately I was too intent on watching the ground in front of me while I staggered home from the pub to look upwards.

    You just need a periscope.

    I'd seriously consider selling my soul to Satan for a decent photo of the Aurora Borealis - it's one of my list of things I want to do before I snuff it.
  9. I've just had four pints of Poacher's choice and at the moment the street lamp outside is providing me with a wonderful photonic extravaganza.
    I seem to have misplaced the sun. :¬((
  10. Too misty here to see anything :(
    Maybe I should have some of what Bauble has had ;)

    We all should have some of what Bauble has had
  12. I'm almost as far south as this country gets so will be out of range for it [​IMG]. I'd love to see it one day.

    Good luck all of you further up north.

    When i lived in NE Fife for 4 years I never saw it, despite people at work saying it had happened the night before on a few occasions.
  15. There are very few places in the world that hold any real interest for me to visit but I really do want to cruise up and see the Aurora Borealis. Satan will have got your soul cheap - a cruise for a week is only £1000 and no single supplement.

    I thought we had a wonderful display here, but it turned out to be next door's bedroom curtains.
