Great photos, would love to see them too. They very rarely can be seen as far south as London though.

Thanks for sharing. I tried to see the Norther Lights when I went on a trip to Alaska a few years back. Sat out every night but saw nothing. I hope those who got to enjoy this spectacular display appreciate how blessed they are!

A friend of mine went to Iceland over Xmas a few years ago, and didn't see a thing as it was cloudy all the time. No guarantees with Mother Nature.

I'm not sure if he was just lucky to be there when the lights showed up, or he had enough time to get there. It isn't a hop skip and a jump to get there when the roads around it are fully cleared in mid-late summer, but I believe now there's only one access and that's from the south. A very long drive.
